School Library Journal - Nancy Jo Lambert, Ruth Borchardt Elementary, Plano, TX

"Each volume walks readers through the steps of creating a story in the featured genre. Key concepts involved in the writing process are outlined: characters, setting, and plot. Then, each title breaks these elements down further to be genre specific. . . .Stock photos appear throughout, the graphics and examples are well done, and the glossaries are helpful to young writers." - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - Steven Hadge, Library Media Specialist, Robertson Elementary School, Manchester,

"The best part of these books is that as the story elements are being discussed there is an example of a story to show exactly how each feature is incorporated in the piece. A complete short story unfolds as the elements are presented. With teacher guidance, these books would be suitable for highly motivated middle elementary students as well as older elementary students who need assistance with their creative writing." - Library Media Connection
