". . . this series straightforwardly introduces writing in various genres through chapters on inspiration, preparation. organization, composition, and publication . . .

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2013

"Each 48-page, hardcover volume in this outstanding series for children ages 5 and up is hallmarked by clear, concise, 'user friendly' steps to take new writers through the creative process within their chosen category . . . these 'how to' titles are so good that it can also be enthusiastically recommended to anyone and everyone seeking to write (and have published!) their own novel."

Children's Bookwatch, August 2012

"Lists of contemporary and classic literature, as well as movies, give readers plenty of models to help them create their pieces. The organizational strategies and writing exercises are user-friendly. The books are narrated in such a way that readers are treated like real written no matter their age. Sidebars tackle additional topics."

School Library Journal, Fall 2012

". . . Litwin offers up writing prompts creepy enough for R. L. Stine and proves to be a capable fiction writer with examples of eerie atmosphere and unnerving characters . . . the content is killer."
