MAKING A PICTURE BOOK SERIES
Julie Gribble is a media specialist who is now making her mark in the world of children’s writing as the founder of KidLit TV. Lori Hanson is an illustrator. Julie and Lori independently published their first picture book, Bubblegum Princess in July 2013. In this series of guest posts, they took us through the process in fascinating and enlightening detail. Most of the posts were written by Julie, with Lori contributing posts occasionally.
