dc.description.abstractThis 64-page glossy book is one of eighteen offered by Compass Point Books for children in the fifth through seventh grades. I am impressed with its up-to-dateness, its insight into fable, and its approach to writing. It has ten chapters strong on brainstorming and training techniques. As I page through, I am delighted to see many old friend editions and authors and am surprised at the range of people on whom Rosinsky draws for inspiration and illustration. I find a good deal of helpful advice here, from keeping a journal and a notebook and creating a writing zone through putting aside one's first attempt for a while to making a copy for oneself when shipping the final work off to a publisher. Turn bad experiences into good stories. Ignore your inner critic. What good advice! Good fable-book producers noted and cited here include Michael Morpurgo, Candace Fleming, Demi, Jerry Pinkney, John Scieszka, Christopher Wormell, Arnold Lobel, Saviour Pirotta, Helen Ward, Elizabeth Dahlie, Paul Rosenthal, Mitsumasa Anno, Jan Thornhill, Rafe Martin and Ed Young, and Julius Lester. Good bibliography, image credits, and index. For students' textbooks, the books in this series carry a pretty hefty pricetag!en_US
