Jack Gantos is like a David Sedaris for kids, and now he's written a book for kids about writing. Full of instructions for kids on how to keep a notebook to record all the interesting material they can turn into their own stories, the book also contains a number of amusing anecdotes and drawings from Gantos' own childhood. Lots of fun and some great tips for young writers.
