Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Two new entries in the picture-book-size Writer's Toolbox series explore two very different mediums plays and comics but, taken together, underscore the importance of basic fundamentals in effective writing. Both books combine original artwork and a number of Tools to get the creative juices flowing. Art Panels, Bam! Speech Bubbles, Pow! features a young girl creating a comic about a dog and his lost bone and starts out with fairly broad directives to read other graphic novels for inspiration and brainstorm story ideas, before getting into graphic-novel-specific tips on laying out panel arrangements and dabbling in emanata and speech bubbles. When the tools get a bit vague (like how exactly to go about making thumbnail sketches), the art picks up the slack to more clearly convey what is being discussed. A handful of Getting Started Exercises provide even more fodder for artistic inspiration in these genuinely good-natured and helpful introductions to creative writing.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
