Guy-Write: What Every Guy Writer Needs to Know

Ralph Fletcher. Holt/Ottaviano, $14.99 (176p) ISBN 978-0-8050-9404-6
With chapter titles like “Riding the Vomit Comet: Writing About Disgusting Stuff,” this handbook is pointedly geared toward enticing boys to embrace creative writing. Topics include writing humor, sports writing, scary stories, and keeping a notebook. Examples of writing by kids and interviews with such authors as Jon Scieszka, Robert Lipsyte, and Jarrett J. Krosoczka provide real-world models. Fletcher gives readers permission to write about the topics and ideas that interest them, while urging them to strive for depth, meaning, and emotion in their work. Ages 8–14. (July)
