This was a pretty good book. I did not realize it was for kids until after I checked it out. The plus side is that my son started looking through it and expressed an interest in writing/designing comic books. Any book that can inspite that is awesome in my view.
3 days 8 chapters and 128 pages later I completed reading the book,its impressive that it was a children's book on how to write a short story,the book was very explanatory and narrowed down professional approaches to short story writing. I already knew how to be imaginative and write stories since first grade but this book further legitimized great writers like Stephen King,Shakespeare,RL Stine etc. I checked it out of the children section of library and now returning it...book was great,though...more
I also didn't realize this was for kids until I checked it out. Very intro advice, common sense for anyone who has read a lot.. not for the serious author in a slump. Still the advice was good and I would recommend buying it for a kid just starting to show an interest in writing.
