scholars and students all over the world. The original edition of

to contemporary picturebooks, which proved that they are
sophisticated readers of visual texts and are able to make sense of
complex images on literal, visual and metaphorical levels. Through

understand different viewpoints, analyse moods, messages and
emotions, and articulate personal responses to picture books - even
when they struggle with the written word.The study of picturebooks
and children's responses to them has increased dramatically in the
12 years since the first edition was published. Fully revised with
a review of the most recent theories and critical work related to
picturebooks and meaning-making, this new edition demonstrates how
vital visual literacy is to children's understanding and
development. The second edition: Includes three new case studies
that address social issues, special needs and metafiction
