How This Book Was Made
How This Book Was Made
by Mac Barnett, Adam Rex


Oh my gosh. It starts off with the simple story the title gives away. Then it gets hilariously crazy. From the Goodreads description:
You may think you know how this book was made, but you don't. Sure, the author wrote many drafts, and the illustrator took a long time creating the art, but then what? How'd it get into your hands? Well, open the cover and read through these pages to find out. Just beware of the pirates and angry tiger.

New York Times best-selling creators Mac Barnett and Adam Rex reveal the nitty gritty process of making a book . . . with a few unexpected twists along the way! Budding writers and artists will laugh at the mix of reality and the absurd as the story makes its way to a shelf, and a reader.



I was indeed entirely entertained, and I had a hard time not laughing out loud in the middle of the library. I'm a writer, but I've never tried to publish a children's book. I didn't realize it could be so dangerous and crazy! heehee I've read some reviews that said other Mac Barnett & Adam Rex team up books are even better; I can't wait to find out if that's true. But I definitely loved reading this one.
