Illustory: Create Your Own Book!
|Note:||Kit is only useable in the U.S. Printed books will only be shipped to U.S. addresses.|
Create your own long lasting, professional looking book! The IlluStory kit contains non-toxic, washable markers, writing pages, instructions, hints, a story planner, and a postage paid envelope. Write your story, then illustrate it. When you're finished, mail it in (at no additional charge) for completion and production. They'll bind your book, returning a 7" x 9" hardcover book that even has a place for a dedication. The kit produces an 18 page book, and the author's bio can be placed on the back cover.
Authors have the choice of either creating their book by hand using the materials in the kit, or producing their book online using the company's website. Working online allows kids to upload photos or scanned images and use digital drawing tools and effects (like speech bubbles, pre-designed backgrounds and more). Designing online also allows them to place more text on each page (there are per-page word limits for hard copy bookmaking). Planning sheets, informational sheets on types of writing and quite a few "story web" graphic organizers flesh out the contents of IlluStory and may be helpful to tie the project in with your current writing curriculum.

These materials cover various types of creative writing, includingdescriptive writing, poetry, journaling, and stories.
Perfect for aspiring authors or as a keepsake, these kits provide all the tools for children to create their own professional-looking book. Each kit includes an illustrated Quick Start guide, blank book pages, washable markers, a postage-paid envelope and an order form. Children can use the pages to write and illustrate their own story, then scan and upload to the Lulu Jr. site, or mail their pages and order form. Kits include the cost of processing and printing one book, which is returned to you in a few weeks or up to 4-6 weeks.
