I thought writing for children was especially difficult, and didn't daretry it. Before I encountered this book. It made me believe that anybodycan do it. Most of all I enjoyed the chapters on how to make the charatersinternal and external plot function, and what one should put in thesetting, and where it should be.
Within these pages you learn how to creat vivid pictures in the readers.How to create vivid characters, settings and dialogue. All these valuableadvices on the teqhniques of writing can be applied on adultbooks as well.

This book has been in my personal library for years, but somehow I overlooked reading it until this week. I regret not having devoured it sooner. It’s an excellent self-guided study in learning to write for children when one hasn’t decided whether to try fiction, nonfiction or poetry.
I liked the author’s emphasis on creating clear pictures with our words that capture an editor’s attention as well as that of the one who picks it up because of its intriguing cover. The author has created a workable approach to writing for kids and teens.
