Product Details


A step-by-step guide for young aspiring writers of fiction, featuring Giff’s golden retriever, Rosie. In this loving and personal guide, Giff walks students through her own writing process, beginning with character ideas and moving on to cover plot, setting, dialogue, and more. Chapters like “Can You See How I Did It?” and “Your Turn” accompany lessons and challenge readers to give it their own go. For instance, readers are encouraged to think of a problem for their character and contemplate how it might be resolved (“If the problem were yours, would it worry you? Would you have to do something about it?”). While doling out the writing tips, Giff also reflects on Rosie, using the dog’s antics to give the read a lighter touch.” —School Library Journal
