Do you ever wonder just what happens during the creation of some of your favorite books?  It recently occurred to us at Master Books that you might like to know what we’re doing along the way as we design engaging new books so I thought I’d share a little sneak peek into the process with the latest in the Legends and Lore series, Giants: Legends & Lore of Goliaths.  We started with an incredible idea which author Charles Martin brought to life in writing.  Then the illustrating begins!  Bill Looney stepped up for us yet again and, as illustrator of the first two books in this Series, Dragons: Legends & Lore of Dinosaursand The Flood of Noah, Legends & Lore of Survival, we could be confident in quality that will entertain kids and parents alike.
