`The book will be of interest to anyone sharing pictorial texts with children, professionally or privately' - School Librarian
`The collection, like the texts it analyzes, is rich and variable and early years educators will have to be selective in the papers they concentrate on, but there are some gems to be found.... It would appear that there are many things in the picture - this is an exciting start!' - TACTYC
The book is a collection of eleven papers contributed by various authors, including an interview with Anthony Browne, a picturebook author. Their common concern is how young readers make sense of stories presented by visual, and also by verbal strata of various picturebooks. The contributors address higher reading skills, which involve discussion of thematic aspects relevant for the understanding of literary conventions, and they focus on children of various pre-primary and primary age, including those who encounter reading in a new, foreign language, and in a new cultural context.
