Review quote

"Judy Morris's book is entertaining and intelligent, but the exercises make it extraordinary. They will help both novices and seasoned authors gain insight and move forward with their writing." -- Jane Leslie Conly, author of Crazy Lady!, a Newbery Honor Book "Lest anyone doubt that writing for children is both an art and a craft, here's strong evidence. An experienced writer and teacher of writing, Judy Morris leads would-be authors through the nuanced stages of developing plot, character, setting, structure, style, and voice. She combines practical exercises with specific examples from landmark fiction, underscoring the whole with a deep respect for children and the stories that engage them. For those aspiring to publish in the realm of children's literature, this book will prove a valuable companion." -- Betsy Hearne, author of Choosing Books for Childrenshow more
