Each section is then broken up into chapters ranging from such subjects as writing from the intuitive right and logical left brain to preparing a manuscript for mailing. Of particular interest are the story arcs and storyboa

Ini salah satu buku pegangan saya saat menulis tentang anak-anak dan remaja. Banyak pengetahuan praktis tentang menulis bagi anak-anak yang saya peroleh di sini. Cocok banget buat yang mau nulis buku fiksi ataupun non fiksi buat anak-anak dan remaja. Oh, ya. Ada latihannya juga, lho. *damn.... gue udah kaya' sales buku aja*

This book was so good, I returned it early to the library and bought my own copy. What an excellent reference/handbook for anyone interested in children's lit. Though it is specifically for writers, it would also be useful to those studying children's lit, especially modern children's lit. Each type of writing for children is explained and defined with understandable examples from recent books.

I liked how this book had different sections of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. I could just read about what I was interested in. It would be a great book to read after you have a finished manuscript.

This book also has a lot of good information about writing for children. Useful tools like how to storyboard etc. I also use this book to refer to when writing a piece for kids.
