hmmm... a decent introduction to creative writing. It was a bit short though and ended rather abruptly. It would have been nice if there was a bit of wrap up at the end to bring it all back into perspective. My son, eleven years old, claims that he has learned many new things that he is going to try in his writing, so that is good.
A good intro for kids. It covers concepts they probably won't discuss in class until high school, so they can get a good head start on both the craft of fiction and non-fiction writing. I would be cautious, however, in giving this book to a young writer too early, as so many concepts might overwhelm their creativity.
My least favorite Basher title to-date. Seems thin and poorly categorized.
