An ideal gift for the young potential author in one’s life.” – Midwest Book Review

“A most welcome source for educators and children – both inspiring and practical. Teachers need her straightfoward text. Librarians can recommend it whole-heartedly to the public. And kids will grow in their writing skills enthusiastically.  Buy two copies!  One for yourself, and one to share!” – Jan Irving, children’s lit & library services consultant

“Appealing to all ability levels, this is an inspirational book that provides both motivation and guidance with a positive focus . . . not only very user-friendly and easy to use, but also fun to read. I would strongly recommend this book for any older child or teen with an interest in writing.”
A Different Drummer, newsletter of Oregon Association for Talented and Gifted (OATAG)
