    What a cool book! Calling all kids who want to be a writer and illustrator of graphic novels! Raina Telgemeier walks kids through her process for creating some of her very popular graphic novels: SMILE, SISTERS, DRAMA, and GHOSTS.

    What a cool book! Calling all kids who want to be a writer and illustrator of graphic novels! Raina Telgemeier walks kids through her process for creating some of her very popular graphic novels: SMILE, SISTERS, DRAMA, and GHOSTS.

    Interspersed with excerpts from the book and descriptions of Telgemeier's process are writing prompts, drawing lessons, and spaces for kids to plan and execute the beginnings of their own graphic novels. The book also includes ideas for consistently sparking creativity and finding sources of inspiration in your own life.

    Best of all, Telgemeier takes kids' writing and illustration very seriously. She is not humoring kids here! One thing serious kid artists will think is cool is how the author shares the tools she uses to create her art. I learned a lot about what it takes to produce a quality graphic novel!

    Highly recommended for fans of Raina Telgemeier, graphic novels in general, and any kids who dream of creating their own graphic novel some day. All writers—even those who are not illustrators—can find inspiration here.

    Since this is a workbook, I pre-ordered a copy for each of my daughters.

    Raina is SO good at everything, I can't wait to see her next book, Guts! I hope she looks at this!

    @kidlitexchange #partners Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

    This book was great! Lots of tips and idea-gathering questions for young writers as well as space to make the story begin to take shape. Telgemeier shares the inspiration for her books as well shows how the novels come together - from a brainstormed list to a sketch to an inked final copy. I can see myself using this when working with my students. @scholasticinc @goraina

    Using her other published graphic novels, Raina Telgemeier walks readers through the process of writing their own stories. Through Smile she talks about how to draw - faces, and expressions; how to reminisce about your hometown and decide what elements make it special. Sisters helps the reader look at family, and gives ideas about writing your own story from a special family trip or event. Drama brings the reader ideas about writing fiction based on experiences in their own life. She asks questi

    Using her other published graphic novels, Raina Telgemeier walks readers through the process of writing their own stories. Through Smile she talks about how to draw - faces, and expressions; how to reminisce about your hometown and decide what elements make it special. Sisters helps the reader look at family, and gives ideas about writing your own story from a special family trip or event. Drama brings the reader ideas about writing fiction based on experiences in their own life. She asks questions about school and talks about research; and with Ghosts she talks about writing from another perspective and how important atmosphere is. Telgemeier has provided a very useful workbook.

    Great questions to get you thinking about your own stories, tips on drawing and the process of making a graphic panel story. It’s not necessary to have read all of Telgemeier’s books, but her ideas are drawn from them, so it wouldn’t hurt to know them. This would be a great guide for an individual - especially one who loves Raina Telgemeier, or as a classroom text for a unit on writing your own stories.

    Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book -all opinions are my own. Fans of Raina Telgemeier will love her new interactive journal. Telegemeier helps young readers share their own stories just like she's shared her own in her best selling graphic novels. Each chapter starts with an excerpt from one of her books and then she explains how her real life inspired them. There are then questions that help encourage creativity and a space for writing.

    I love how Raina lets young fans know how she uses her own life to pull inspiration for her books. This journal is more than just full of writing prompts. It has pictures from her childhood and she even gives the steps of creating a graphic novel from idea building to putting the color into the pages. This is one of the most interactive writing journals that I have seen. Young writers who love Raina's books will love this.

Using her own work as a starting point (and including illuminating excerpts from it), aspiring writers are instructed to look at their own background, interests, family, and neighborhood in order to find topics for their stories. There is an interesting section where the how-tos of drawing are laid out, complete with suggestions about paper and writing implements. Fans of this author will also appreciate the inclusion of her personal photographs and reminiscences that inspired her books.

    There are always a few books by popular authors about how to write being published

    Ally Carter's Dear Ally, How Do You Write a Book, Alexander's The Write Thing: Kwame Alexander Engages Students in Writing Workshop (And You Can Too!) (2018), and Walter Dean Myer's Just Write: Here's How (2012) come to mind, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if Jason Reynolds has a similar book in the works. Tweens who love to write LOVE to write, and these books are valuable in giving them direction and motivation.

    Graphic novels are, of course, extremely popular, and a number of tweens love to draw, so this is a good mix of basic writing advice combined with artistic instruction. This book would make a great gift, since there are pages to be filled out, but because of the additional information about Telgemeier's work and life, it has a place in a school or public library as well. Now, if we could just keep patrons from writing in the library copy!

    Raina Telgemeier encourages young readers to share their own stories in this guide to writing and drawing. Chapters start with excerpts from her super popular books that lead the way into writing prompts on different subjects - memoir, writing about family, writing based on experiences that happened to you, and writing based on setting. Space is provided in each section for readers to answer questions and start drawing and writing their own stories.

    This is going to be super popular. Libraries should be aware that this is a book that encourages kids to write in it. It's still worth getting for the behind-the-scenes look at how Telgemeier wrote Smile and her advice and encouragement for young writers.
