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.
I was looking for some fun exercises for National Novel Writing Month when I checked this out from the library.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that it was written for the young student. Add a star to my review if you are a junior high or high school student looking for pointers on a short fiction assignment.

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.
