Full of really useful tips and fun writing activities this is a great book for any youngster who enjoys telling stories. As well as breaking them down into the component parts that make up a successful ghost or mystery story, the book is packed too with suggestions on how to plot, create character and build suspense. There are lots of examples of vocabulary and phrases to make your writing more exciting and effective and a selection of tempting story starters too so there’s no excuse for not putting pen to paper and creating some thrilling stories. You can fill it in, scrapbook like, and atmospheric illustrations by Pam Smy add further inspiration. ~ Andrea Reece
