abstract
It began with an idea. Books have enchanted children for generations. Stories like the Peter Rabbit and Goodnight Moon have not only regaled and soothed small children for generations, but given them the tools they needed to achieve the kind of literacy that allows for the length and breadth of discovery all across this campus and many like it. Behind each and every book, however, there is an author who brings it across the finish line. The process of making a book can be divided into three parts; the research, the execution and the marketing. In researching, the author needs to discover not only what the book he/she wants to write would be about and what the illustrations should look like, but also the demographics of the audience and the length of the book. After mapping out the book, I went on towards execution which involves creating a look for each of the characters and, in this case, mastering the medium of watercolor. Last, the marketing stage, involves a cycle of sending out publishers packets tailored to the desires of each of the seven publishers that have been identified as being possibly interested in this novel. It began with an idea and it ended with a book. This is that story.
