Title:Narrative in picture books, or, The paper that should have had slides
Author(s):Stevenson, Deborah
Subject(s):Children's literature
Visual narrative
Picture books
Abstract:In this sense picture books resemble other combinative art forms, such as opera or musical theater, films, and ballet; older examples include the courtly masque and the emblem book. This resemblance is good for me, since I thrive on analogies (I was apparently permanently warped by that section of the SATs), and I therefore often find it useful to consider picture books along with those other media, without, of course, ignoring the fact that picture books also have their own individual charms and characteristics. I'd like to examine the aspects of the picture book the text, the art and other physical factors and then discuss how these narratives work together to affect each other and the final outcome.
