The Picture Book Proclamation

There seem to be a lot of proclamations flying around these days. Here is one that we can stand behind. A group of picture book writers and illustrators have banded together to write a proclamation in support of picture books. It begins "Proclamation: We are tired of hearing the picture book is in trouble, and tired of pretending it is not." What follows are a list of beliefs, comdemnations and declarations about the current state of picture bookdom. There are some great insights here, put forth by some big names, including Lemony Snicket, Jon Scieszka, Adam Rex, Carson Ellis and others. Click the image for a better look at what they are proclaiming, or go here to see a big version. What do you think?
