From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8–In this excellent resource, specific ways to write different types of stories, project ideas, and resources are presented in such a way as to make short story assignments enjoyable. Readers are given many tips and practice activities in chapters that progress from gathering ideas to the final revision. Each section includes quotes from well-known authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Richard Peck, and Louis Sachar. Cartoon illustrations and touches of color make the book attractive. A sample short story takes readers step-by-step through the process, and there are mini-guides on writing humorous, mystery, suspense, science-fiction, and fantasy stories. Lists of recommended stories in each genre are included, as are lists of resources for books and Web sites related to short fiction writing. The easy-to-follow format will appeal to even the most reluctant writers.–Denise Moore, OGorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD
