Horn Book Guide



First published in 1990, The Horn Book Guide is several decades younger than its sister publication, The Horn Book Magazine, but it quickly proved itself just as indispensable. Follow the links below for a history of the journal, brief bios of its editors, and some early editorials. A gallery of all the Guide covers is also a click away. So is every title index from 2000 to the present.
