My Book of Stories - Write Your Own Adventure
A compendium of story starters taken from the very best stories ever written
Mysterious lines from Treasure Island, illustrations from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and scenes from The Wizard of Oz will inspire new characters to be created, new quests to be undertaken, and perhaps even an adventurous comic strip to unfold. Within the colorful and beautifully illustrated pages of this book are opportunities to write adventures, to invent new companions for a daring expedition, or to complete conversations with caterpillars. Budding authors will also have journal entries to fill in, letters to write and pictures of new characters to draw. The book is also packed full of fun facts about classic books and their authors, storytelling top tips and puzzles to do.
These materials cover various types of creative writing, includingdescriptive writing, poetry, journaling, and stories.
These materials focus on writing practice and offer little to no writinginstruction.
Are these literary analysis or writing instruction books? There is so much great information packed into such an attractive package: a visual symphony of images and instruction for each theme. For example, you will learn tidbits about the origin of fairy tales, the 5 most popular ways to begin a fairy tale, as well as prompts and outlines to write your own story (i.e. beginning, set-up, obstacle and ending). Along the way is a surprising amount of literary analysis as students are guided step by step through the writing process. Some pages have students writing in the book directly, making these a charming keepsake. They are so pretty that you will want to read again and again! 6.75x7.75", 96pp. SC. ~ Sara
