What a great book equipping kids with the skills and follow-along guide to create their own superheroes! I wish there had been such a book when I was growing up.

A book for kids on writing stories - yes, please! I love the concept of this and find it appealing to all ages. Do you want to be a superhero? Create a superhero? This book sounds like it will show you how and help create a story to send your hero on.

This looks like a great, fun book for young writers and superhero enthusiasts alike! It would be perfect for our Superhero Day here at the library. I'm recommending it to our children's librarian.

From the Author
As a professional writer, educator, and mentor, I firmly believe that writing is one of the most important tools a student can have. After all, in order to write clearly, you must first think clearly. Students who can logically organize their thoughts will, by extension, be better test-takers and studiers.

By becoming better writers, students also become better readers. Understanding (and being able to incorporate) elements of solid writing into their own stories means they will more readily recognize those elements in classroom reading assignments.
