The shifting world of publishing for children is not a simple one. As an old maxim in the kids’ book trade has it, “it’s just bunny eat bunny.” From the days of Mary Poppins to Everyone Poops, there have been incredible changes in children’s books. “We’ll talk about how books published for children reflect our changing society,” says Shan Ellentuck, the author and illustrator of half a dozen books for children, including The Upside-Down Man, Yankel the Fool and the award-winning A Sunflower As Big As the Sun. “I’ll show books that I’ve written and illustrated and talk about how they got from the spark of an idea to the shelves of a bookstore.”
