Giblin Guide to Writing Children's Books

James Cross Giblin is that rarest of combinations: a renowned children’s book editor who has achieved equal stature as one of America’s most honored children’s book authors. As Editor-in-Chief and Publisher at Clarion Books for 22 years, Giblin oversaw Clarion’s rise from a small house with only 18 titles to an industry leader with over 400 books in print.

Jim has written 30 books, many of them award-winners. His latest book, The Rise and Fall of Senator Joe McCarthy (2009) received a starred review from Kirkus. Giblin’s books have garnered 34 major awards and honors, including the Sibert Medal, the National Book Award, three Golden Kites, four Best YA Books, and 15 American Library Association “Notables.”

From this unique perspective comes The Giblin Guide. Called “a terrific hands-on book” by The Boston Globe, it is a revealing look at just what it takes to get published.

"This is another great read from [ICL]... When I saw this particular one, I grabbed it immediately ... This book is a great addition to a writer's (whether published or not) shelf ... I highly recommend their writing courses. You receive feedback on your work from published authors. You will be encouraged but also pushed to make your story from good to great."
