Hire the best children's book editors


How important is a children’s book editor to children’s book authors? Well, consider this story: Dr. Seuss actually wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a bet, after being famously challenged to use only 50 words to write a story. As for who challenged him? You guessed it: his editor and publisher, Bennett Cerf. The result of their collaboration was one of the greatest children’s books of all time.
