I absolutely love this book! I'm studying to become a teacher and I love how the book explains in a non-intimidating a easy to follow way how a book becomes a book. Great to use in the classroom if you want to do a book project with kids. It can get a little distracting and confusing because of the captions so it's not recommended for readers younger than 9. Other than that great book!!!

This book uses simple sentences and comic strip style pictures to explain how writers write and what writers do before, during, and after writing processes. I could use this to help review the writing process, as a great deal of the book explores pre-writing, editing, and revision, which many students simply don't do.

This is a great book to read to children to inspire them to the write. It explains the processes that authors go through in order to right the perfect book for publishers. Books are written from any and every moment of the day and sometimes it can be hard to write those thoughts on paper.A good author gets feedback and writes draft after draft. Through this book, children can be motivated to write their own books and this book can be used as a guide. This is such a cute book to read to children when teaching them how to write books, journals, papers, anything. I loved the little blurbs that make it look like a comment and how the animals talked to each other.

I bought this book for my 8 year old son who hated writing.....it really helped change his attitude towards the task.  It is funny and informative  at the same time, I agree that all children should have this book at home!!!! Amantina NYC
