'This is a handbook for those who aspire to write for children, for experienced writers who wish to understand the different requirements of different readerships, and for those who simply wish to learn more about the books they, their chilren or young library members are reading ... This practical up-to-date guide for writing for children, illustrated by a wealth of published and tailor-made examples, should find a place on library shelves and those of many a writer and reader.' - Orana, Australian Library and Information Association 'The book is full of good advice ... Each topic is dealt with constructively and this leads to a very useful handbook for students of creative writing and for the student who wishes to pursue any topic in depth, a bibliography is provided at the end.' - Writing in Education
