Mark Mitchell’s blog on children’s book illustration and illustrators.

The Purple Crayon

I am a children’s book editor, and I created this site so I could post articles and other materials about how to publish a children’s book. Over the years, the site has grown and now includes articles contributed by other people, covering writing, illustrating, marketing, and editing.

I live in Brooklyn, am an associate agent at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency and write young adult and middle grade of my own. My favorite things about kidlit change almost every day.

Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast

Our vision for this blog, founded in August 2006, was pretty simple: We planned to talk about the books we read. And we did. We read lots of different kinds of books: picture books for toddlers, memoirs, young adult fiction, graphic novels, Man Booker Prize-winning high-art metafiction, whatever. And we wrote about them, whenever we could, in the hopes that we could a) let you, the reader, know about a book that you might like to read, too, and b) inspire discussion about said books.
