With funny insights and a conversational style, he explains the way writers use symbol, metaphor, characterization, setting, plot and other key techniques to make a story come to life. From that very first middle school book report to that first college course, kids need to be able to understand the layers of meaning in literature. Foster makes learning this important skill fun and exciting by using examples from How the Grinch Stole Christmas to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, from short stories and poems to movie scripts. This go-to guide unlocks all the hidden secrets to reading, making it entertaining and satisfying.

  • The book was okay3

    Kim Heimbuch Reviewed by Janessa, Age 15
    This book was just okay and I really wish it had been so much better because I really like to read and write and this book just wasn't what I thought it would be. A lot of the books mentioned in this book (pages one hundred fifty five though one hundred sixty two) I have never read and the author didn't include any modern books, which is what I was looking for since those are the books kids my age read for fun, even in school.
