Abstract: 
Pictures, as well as written discourse, convey meanings. However, the capacity of visuals as meaning making resource is often overlooked such that visuals in picture books are not given significant attention. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to explore visual and discourse interaction, specifically in children’s picture books by Anthony Browne. Visual literacy was adopted for visual analysis while critical literacy was adopted for discourse analysis. The findings indicated that the visuals in Anthony Browne’s children’s picture books convey meanings that can either support or contradict its accompanying discourse.
