Review Policy

Sorry, I am not currently accepting any self-published review/interview requests

I review recently published (within the last 12 months) or forthcoming children's picture books on the basis of illustration and design. Depending on the type of review, coverage may be given here on Let's Talk Picture Books and/or on my Instagram account.

While I cannot review every book I receive, I will send you a link to any coverage I give your book. Please note that it can take up to 6 weeks to post a review after the book is received.

For every review, all opinions are my own regardless of how I received the book.

Let's Talk Illustrators is an interview series that explores the methods, media, and inspiration illustrators use to create visual worlds and narratives in children's picture books. An archive of the series can be found here.

  • Title
  • Author's and illustrator's names

I look forward to hearing from you.
