The Lovereading4Kids comment
Kids who enjoy writing will find lots of practical and inspiring ideas in this excellent book, while those whose hearts sink at being asked to write a story will see just how much fun it can be. There are pages of activities to get you started, exercises to help you polish your writing skills with tips on everything from characters and dialogue to titles, and a great writing section with story ideas from prize-winning children’s author Paul Dowswell. The illustrations and very attractive layout make the neat lined write-in pages for your story look very tempting indeed, and are certain to get young imaginations flowing. ~ Andrea Reece
