REVIEW: How To Write Your Best Story Ever! by Christopher Edge

 Get the kids’ imagination working overtime with this inspirational new book

 

 

Even the most creative of children (and adults!) need a little encouragement to write sparkling prose from time to time, so this new book is just the ticket for all budding young writers.

Not only does author Christopher Edge let young readers in on all kinds of writer’s trade secrets, he also teaches the basics of how to write some really cracking stories, and helps encourage kids to try their hand at all kinds of different genres. From historical and adventure fiction to sci-fi, comedy and even TV scripts, there are some really clever ideas here to get their creative juices flowing. With some inspiring illustrations by Nathan Reed, it’s just the help they need when it comes to writing stories for homework, or encouraging small people with big imaginations. OUP, age: 7+
