KIRKUS BOOK REVIEW SERVICE

Traditional Review

About 250-300 words, our reviews include summary to give our readers context, along with a concise, unbiased opinion that can be positive, negative, or, most likely, mixed. Each Kirkus review gives both a general sense of a book’s worth and specific information about its strengths and weaknesses. No matter the outcome, you will have the option of keeping the review private and simply using the assessment as feedback to improve your craft. Otherwise, you can publish the review and use it to market your book to consumers or to try to catch the attention of a literary agent or publisher.

Picture Book / Children’s Book Review

About 200 words, our children’s picture-book reviews include summary to give our readers context, along with a concise, unbiased opinion that can be positive, negative, or, most likely, mixed. Each Kirkus review gives both a general sense of a book’s worth and specific information about its strengths and weaknesses. With picture books (48 pages or less), reviewers may comment on any or all of the following: plot, instructiveness, integration of illustrations, media, text placement, and the diversity of characters.

Expanded Review

About 500 words, our longer reviews, as with our 250 to 300-word reviews, include summary to give our readers context, along with the unbiased opinion that can be positive, negative, or, most likely, mixed. With our longer reviews, authors receive additional summary and analysis, which the author can possibly use as feedback or marketing materials. Each Kirkus review gives both a general sense of a book’s worth and specific information about its strengths and weaknesses.
