This is an easy to read book for kids about story writing. I liked that the author didn't complicate his tips with too many examples. He kept it quite simple. This would be great for early readers.

Received as an ARC. ( )

This book is by the same author, Dan Gutman, who writes the series, My Weirder School. Hense the book's name, My Weird Writing Tips. The writing tips aren't weird at all. In fact, they're quite practical. This book is geared toward a younger audience. The book suggests ages 8-12, and I agree with that. With the help of two of his characters, Andrea and Arlo, Gutman gives tips on how to be better writers. This book is good for any kid who has expressed an interest in writing. It gives a realistic view on writing as well. He also includes quotes from famous authors to help illustrate his points. This is an easy to understand guide that kids can use as a valuable tool.

With illustrated appearances from A.J. and Andrea, stars of his bestselling My Weird School series, and with his trademark wacky sense of humor, Dan makes learning the writing and storytelling basics so fun kids will forget they’re learning.
