This book fascinated me and if you write for children or want to, it will likely fascinate you too. It takes a number of published books and short stories for children and the authors show you the rough drafts then all of the edits including those done by the editors who wound up publishing the works so you can see how that works and how to improve your own work through editing.

Over the years I've read many books on writing, and I really found this to be one of the most helpful. All of its great advice on revision came just when I was working on the sequel to my first children's novel, "A Smidgen of Sky." I've never written a sequel before, and the examples of before and after that Sandy uses were just what I needed. I'd definitely recommend this book for writers.
