What if my children’s book is mostly wordless - in that the images carry the story? I am a professional artist, tho not a professional children’s book illustrator.

If I submit my all-picture book to a publisher, will they think “amateur! gah!!” or will they get that since it’s a wordless book, I need to submit it with my images.. They can always say they want their own artist.
