Professional reviews

"Authors Anne Mazer and Ellen Potter give kids insight into the writing process. The conversational tone of their essays on topics like generating ideas, plotting, and revision is reinforced by their own reading of their work. Listeners will get a sense of each personality from Mazer's subdued reading and Potter's vivacious one. The contrast adds interest to the production as a whole and makes the authors seem that much more real, giving their advice weight. Mazer and Potter freely share insecurities and doubts, as well advice on how to overcome them, along with practical tips and writing exercises. This is a useful and entertaining guide for writers of any age. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
