What People are Saying About This

Mary Clare Wickins
"Young people are shown how to take ordinary life events, dress them
in dramatic narrative, and transform them into well-told tales. This
handbook shows how to uncover story ideas, create characters, map out plot,
and present a finished product to various audiences. Each lesson concludes
with suggested activities followed by a sample notebook entry. Bobbi Shupe's
black and white dragon illustrations attractively decorate the text. This is
a book to be used in creative writing and drama classes as well as
storytelling workshops with young people ages eight to twelve. The
uniqueness of its focus is in the composition of original stories rather
than the presentation of traditional story fare.

"This book is as much a storytelling as a storymaking guide. An
added benefit to be gleaned is in teaching young folks to converse in an
animated and interesting manner. In looking at ordinary events in life as
the "stuff that stories are made of," children can begin to find the magic
of their own personal stories and to relate them orally with skill and
style."-(Mary Clare Wickins, Acquisitions Librarian, Dayton Memorial Library,
Regis University in Colorado Libraries, Vol. 24, Number 1, Spring, 1998.)
