This volume represents the current state of research on picture books and other adjacent hybrid forms of?visual/verbal texts such as comics, graphic novels, and book apps, with a particular focus on texts produced for and?about young people. When Perry Nodelmana€™s Words about Pictures: the Narrative Art of Childrena€™s Picture Books?was published almost three decades ago, it was greeted as an important contribution to studies in childrena€™s?picture books and illustration internationally; and based substantially on it, Nodelman has recently been named the 2015 recipient of the International Grimm Award for childrena€™s literature criticism. In the years since Words About Pictures appeared, scholars have built on Nodelmana€™s groundbreaking text and have developed a range of other approaches, both to picture books and to newer forms of visual/verbal texts that have entered the marketplace and become popular with young people. The essays in this book offer 'more words' about established and emerging forms of picture books, providing an overview of the current state of studies in visual/verbal texts and gathering in one place the work being produced at various locations and across disciplines. Essays exploring areas such as semiological and structural aspects of conventional picture books, graphic narratives and new media forms, and the material and performative cultures of picture books represent current work not only from literary studies but also media studies, art history, ecology, Middle Eastern Studies, library and information studies, and educational research. In addition to work by international scholars including William Moebius, Erica Hateley, Nathalie op de Beeck, and Nina Christensen that carries on and challenges the conclusions of Words about Pictures, the collection also includes a wide-ranging reflection by Perry Nodelman on continuities and changes in the current interdisciplinary field of study of visual/verbal texts for young?readers. Providing a look back over the history of picture books and the development of picture book scholarship, More Words About Pictures also offers an overview of our current understanding of these intriguing texts.?The app for Eric Carlea#39;s Counting with The Very Hungry Caterpillar foregrounds the discourse of edutainment: rather than a narrative, ... Hungry Caterpillar narrative primarily through the act of tapping the screen (rather than poking fingers through a physical board book). ... discourses and sets a very different tone from that set by the classical music and adult female narrator of the Goodnight Moon app.
