112 indexed pages. A practical guide to writing fiction, by an author who believes in giving children... books that they like. Books they can actually read, that have interesting stories, that will stick to their ribs and offer something for later. Jenny Wagner is famous for her books which are loved and read by children all over the world. The Bunyip of Berkeley’s Creek, John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat, Aranea, The Nimbin, and Message from Avalon are stories that linger in the mind, leaving plenty for later. Writing here for adults, Wagner explores the delicate business of distilling ideas and experience into potent stories for children. She discusses getting started; using your memories, and your knowledge of what it’s like to be a child; My writing with intensity; overcoming difficulties; creating convincing characters and dialogue; structuring stories; controlling the tone, rhythm and pace; instilling layers of meaning; using different points of view; sustaining credible fantasy; understanding the qualities of successful picture books; refining your style; dealing with publishers. "On writing hooks for children" admits that there are no rules, and no advice that fits all cases, but offers exercises and examples to elucidate many aspects of technique. This book will be of great value to new and experienced writers, and to anyone interested in good books for children.
