Arthur Levine had a great moment recalling a golden age. From a publisher's perspective: There was a period in the 80’s where there was a great momentum in picture books. The great thing about that period was the richness and input. People were talking about and wanting them. There was a sense that if he put them out there, people would want them. Now it’s harder. Now he has to do things differently to create extraordinary picture books. Like, cleaning the office.
