A picture book has 32 pages. This is to do with the size of paper and of printing presses. (It is possible to have a smaller book for very young children, but it will always be in multiples of four pages: eg. 16, 24.)
The title page would most often be page 3, and the text and/or illustrations would start on page 4 or 5.
The text and final illustration would be on page 30, 31 or less usually, 32.
An average text for a picture book would be 600 – 800 words. It is quite difficult to write an interesting story with some intellectual or emotional depth in so few words.
Don't be misled by the apparent simplicity of good picture book stories. A simplistic story is usually not one that children will want to hear again and again. A good picture book story will appear to be simple, but there will be hidden depths, ripples and reverberations. It will be rich in ideas and feelings. There will be much that the adult reader can talk about with the child.
Each block of text for an individual page or a double spread should contain some interesting visual idea.
In a good picture book, the child should be surprised and delighted by the variation in the images on successive pages. If the illustrations are too similar from one page to the next, it is perhaps a children's story (that might or might not have illustrations) rather than a picture book.
If you hope to sell your book outside your circle of family and friends, the theme must be universal however localised the characters and settings. The theme of loneliness, for example, can work just as well if the characters are kangaroos, sloths or badgers.
