Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, 1996
I've read that in a query, it's best to avoid naming comp titles that are extremely successful. I realize that for me as a picture book writer, it would be ridiculous and unrealistic to claim I'm going to be the next Dr. Seuss. But how big is too big? Is it okay to compare my manuscript to a book by a well-known contemporary author like Jane Yolen or Kevin Henkes?
