This amazingly creative set of retellings highlights the ways we make choices about language, form and structure. Children and adults alike will admire the diversity of texts and relish the linguistic gymnastics needed to complete each of these writing challenges. A fantastic tool for teaching writing too!

There are lots of great ideas in here for kids to write in different genres but also to focus them on ways to retell.... I was hoping to use it for guided reading and some activities may lend themselves to this but actually I think there are a number of ways to use it in English generally. And of course it doesn't just have to be about Cinderella but could be used for any well known story. Lots and lots of poetry items too.... Can't wait to use it with the class.

I've been a fan of Oulipo for a while; this book gives some brilliant ideas for classroom usage. No more dull dictionary or thesaurus exercises. This is much more engaging and furniture.

This book gives lots of different ideas to use in the classroom. The examples will be really good for WAGOLLs too.

Great book but the Kindle version is seemingly only compatible with Kindle Fire models-not helpful for those with an eReader.

Love this book! There are so many creative ideas to do with my class. I've even used the example texts in it for us to unpick and create a success criteria from!
Definitely worth the money!
