Picture Books (PB) / Re: Characters not mentioned in a manuscript

I don't think it is always the case, but many times when a character or storyline shows up in the illustrations that isn't in the text, the illustrator has created that character or storyline. But if you have ideas for an illustrated aspect of a story, you could likely include it in notes.

Picture Books (PB) / Characters not mentioned in a manuscript
« Last post by marla-lesage on Yesterday at 05:06 PM »
I know its quite common to have a pet or critter in a PB that is in the illustrations but not in the text. Does this ever work with people? I'm contemplating adding a family to my ms, but don"t want to complicate the text with multiple characters.

Can you think of any examples? Or is it a big no no?

I actually teach one at Hollins University in Virginia. Girls from all over the US come to each year. Sadly, I think for this summer, there is already a waitlist. But here is the information. It's offered every year: https://www.hollins.edu/academics/hollinsummer/taking-joy-in-the-art-of-creative-writing/
