Dilys Evans, a former art editor for Cricket magazine and currently a well-known agent for children's book illustrators, profiles 12 illustrators who exemplify what she calls the fine art of children's book illustration. The illustrators represented here range from Caldecott winners such as David Wiesner, Paul Zelinsky, and Brian Selznick to less "distinguished" artists such as Harry Bliss and Betsy Lewin. Evans' expert commentary on the artistry of each illustrator is a bonus for those of us who are less visually literate. I, for one, now have a new appreciation for the work of Hilary Knight.
