Stories should have universal themes and deal with family or social situations. They should appeal to 4-8 year olds and have approximately 1,000 words. Remember, we only publish picture books. We are NOT interested in concept books, non-fiction, early readers, chapter books, or YA novels. And no holiday books either, thanks.
