Item Details

"[A] handsomely designed cornucopia of ideas...This is more than just a craft book."-- Booklist "It's full of ideas not easily found elsewhere."-- School Library Journal On paper, plastic, or cloth, and decorated with stamps, stencils, and markers: here's the way kids can get their work into print. Every lively page, bursting with boxed tips, color photos, and drawings, turns the publishing process into an adventure. Unique projects display dozens of creative ways to showcase words--books and beyond. Write your thoughts on a memory frame around a photograph. Turn a jewel of a poem into a charm bracelet: copy it onto shrinkable plastic, cut the words into cool shapes, and stick them in the oven to harden. Plus: amazing writing secrets, advice on making design decisions, inside info on famous authors, comments from real kids about how they get ideas, and more.
