Openings are crucial. Don’t lose us! Try to have us on the edge of our seats and wanting more!

Develop the opening spreads (spreads 1-3) of a picture book project.

Have you left room the illustrations? Does every word count?

Do we have a clear idea of your compelling character and the conflict they face?

Set your reader up for fun or fantasy or something else and remember to include all the things necessary to hook us and keep us engaged.
