A fantastic write-in book that helps children learn to write their own stories.

Includes lots of different writing activities including a fictional school journal, writing a comic strip, and forming a story around a picture. Packed with writing tips and a 'storywriting toolkit' to inspire budding authors. Concealed spiral binding that allows the book to open flat but doesn't get in the way as you write.

Perfectly complemented by Usborne's Write Your Own Story Word Book, an inspiring write-in book that helps children find the right words for engaging stories.
