Description

In How Picturebooks Work, Maria Nikolajeva and Carole Scott explore the dynamic relationship between word and image in children's literature. They treat picturebooks as a specific medium or genre in literature and culture, one that prepares children for other media of communication. As such, the authors develop specific theories, terminology, and working tools for discussing the picturebook form.
