Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Everything is upbeat and encouraging in this "how—to" book that is set up like a recipe—with a story rather than a cake as the delicious outcome. Each of the 13 short chapters sets out an important element or step in the writing process. Chapter titles like "Crunchy Characters" and "Tempting Titles" keep the cookbook theme—as does the spiral binding. Illustrations and graphic elements such as borders around pull-out tips help break up the text and keep everything bright. Bullard clearly is using her experience in the COMPAS writing "Writers and Artists in the Schools" program. Aspiring young authors both in and outside of classrooms may find this book an inspiring recipe for success. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
