I have a series of children's books that i would like to self publish, some could have b/w art, others would benefit from full color.
Is LULU a good option to take for this endeavor, or should i look elsewhere? i have looked at Outskirts Press but the upfront cost to do this is prohibitive.
Lastly, is a pure E-book route a better option than a print book?

I have published numerous children's books using Lulu. They look amazing--great print quality.
A children's ebook is a great idea, but I recommend a print book also. It's nice to have on your shelf to show around. Besides, children like to have print books read to them.

I recently published an illustrated children's book in ebook form. I am looking to do a print version too because, like others have said, children love to be able to touch things!
Check out my book here if you like (http://www.lulu.com/product/ebook/silly-billy-pand
I had my cousin illustrate it for me. No, Lulu do not provide illustration services to my knowledge.
Good luck with your books!

Which book format is used for an illustrated book? I have the story and a wonderful artist but I'm not sure how to put it all together. For instance, do you use a regular book or do you need to use something like the cookbook format? I imagine you put together words and illustrations on Word and then format them to fit into a regular book. Am I right?
