Reviews of this book:
Writing is an adventure, and adventures require imagination. What better way to do so than by creating your own Milky Way or soda geyser, becoming an avatar in a game, or composing your own song lyrics. These exercises are gems!
-Ms. Elaine Chiew, Writer, Teacher, Arts and Culture Reviewer, Researcher
Children, like adults, experience the world and construct meaning in a myriad of ways. How one child thinks and expresses ideas or emotions is never quite like another. This volume recognises and respects that uniqueness – by creating space for young writers to explore themes (and take on exciting projects!) ranging from magic to music, video games to fashion. Each chapter is filled with refreshing opportunities for linguistic, emotional and sensory engagement while remaining firmly grounded in pedagogical principles that optimise learning. I would love to integrate these activities into my classroom.

The third instalment of Claudine’s range of creative writing books is an engaging toolkit and a must-have in unleashing the creative juices of children. Thinking out of the box in a bid to come up with solutions to a problem triggers a child’s fertile imagination with awe and wonderment.
