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.
