Taking inspiration from beloved children’s books, and from lives of the authors who wrote them, Sarah Ellis provides suggestions that will help parents, workshop leaders and teachers awaken the imagination of children and start them writing stories. Includes activities that are both fun and original, such as drawing your own island and imagining the adventure that might take place there or learning some basic Klingon and then making up your own secret language.
Where did this book come from?
When I finished The Young Writers’ Companion I had lots of good stories and ideas left over so I put them in a book for adults.
Ellis takes us behind the scenes where we catch writers in the act of creation.
