Illustrations are a fundamental feature in children's picture books and the evidence suggests that they are more than simply window dressing to make books look more attractive. They work in partnership with print to create layers of meaning. Janet Evans here illustrates this by using the responses of a group of children to Angry Arthur. She shows convincingly how encouraging children to respond to books in this way deepens their understanding.
