Kenneth A. Marantz, a retired professor, and Sylvia S. Marantz, a retired school librarian, are longtime columnists for The Book Report, writing about picture books. They live in Columbus, Ohio.From School Library Journal:
Who decides which picture books will be published, or how many copies will be printed? The authors attempt to shed light on such questions through conversations with the people responsible for the making, reviewing, and selling of these books. The interviews took place several years ago, necessitating frequent notes about changes since that time, which underscores the state of flux in the publishing industry. The book is best when the subjects speak for themselves. Attempts by the authors to summarize responses are awkward and often hint at something interesting being left out. There are redundancies of opinion and references to the more technical aspects of publishing are not explained, assuming some prior knowledge. The chapters on book houses and review journals will, however, be of interest to librarians and students wanting to gain insight into the world of publishing. An index gives access to the people and titles mentioned in the text as well as to subject areas.
