My Weird Writing Tips by Dan Gutman

New York Times bestselling author Dan Gutman delivers a book of writing advice that blends the zany humor of My Weird School with the helpful hints of Eats, Shoots and Leaves. Serving up his usual uproarious wit, Dan shares his favorite tips for writing a good story and writing it correctly. And with illustrated appearances from My Weird School stars A.J. and Andrea, this book will keep kids having so much fun, they won't even realize how much they're learning. In this book, kids will learn: when to use its and when to use it's; how to come up with their own mind-blowing story ideas; tips for writing sentences that aren't boring; the difference between commas and apostrophes; spelling tricks for difficult words; why there's no ham in hamburgers; and more.


With pitch-perfect humor and forthright, no-nonsense encouragement, it's an ideal writing and grammar guide for kids who typically wouldn't touch one with a 10-foot poll. Er, pole. -- Publishers Weekly
