Top 20 Picture Book Agents: 171 Sales

The Publisher’s Marketplace tracks sales of manuscripts in different categories–one of the many advantages of their paid services. These sales are self-reported, which may or may not skew the results. These are the top literary agents for picture books for the last year. I have provided links to the agency’s websites when available. Please consult each agency’s policies on submission and follow them carefully.
To see details of the sales, you must be a member of Publisher’s Marketplace.

  1. Great list, still most need a referral and contact and new writers still feel frustration at getting their work out there. You have to write because you love it and not because you want to be famous, rich, etc. It just doesn’t work like that does it? Thanks for sharing. Your blog is a great resource for others.
