    REVIEW QUOTES

Cogent and invaluable. Publishers Weekly

The best of recent volumes on the subject. Kirkus Reviews

Two fine writers put their heads together and come up with an equally fine guide to their craft for beginners. Booklist

For years I have been thinking about writing a HOW TO book for kids who want to write. Now I don't have to. Anne and Ellen have crafted such a wonderful, funny, wise book about how to craft a wonderful, funny, wise book that when eager young writers send me a letter seeking my advice I can now simply say, Read this!' My hat is off to this dynamic duo. Bruce Coville, author of Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher

The singular, intense yet funny voice of SPILLING INK shares advice--how to convince your characters they are alive, avoid noisy dialog tags, wear sunglasses to feel like a spy--with much lively wisdom, and nary a hint of adult condescension. An outstanding book. Nancy Springer, author of The Enola Holmes Mystery series
