Picture books — lovingly and collaboratively produced — go to theheart o who we are as a company. And Candlewick Press remains ascommitted to creating the best possible picture books today as when we frst started twenty years ago.
 Why are we passionate about this genre? Picture books by natureare performances, and all participants have an essential role.There’s the author and illustrator (sometimes the same personplaying different parts). There are editors and designers working hard behind the scenes to make sure their efforts are invisible.There’s the reader and listener, maybe a parent encircling a child with the book on her lap, or a teacher holding a spread aloft.Then there’s the book itself, a still object that spurs the child toaction: pacing the page-turns, “reading” the pictures, voicing asoundtrack, acting out scenes, and especially, using the power of imagination to ll in the spaces.Picture books live on, in the physical world and in our psyche,ever ready to be performed again. And that is a joyful thing.
Strong roots. Stellar growth.
