The Plot Chickens

Book Information

Holiday House, 2009

What does it take to write a great story anyway? Maxine the chicken is about to find out. A voracious reader, Maxine has decided to Write. Step by step she learns and we learn by watching her. Turns out she must begin with a main character who has a problem. Now by asking "What If?" she develops her plot and to really make it good she adds suspense. Next she helps her readers engage in the story by using sensory images. What would they hear or see or smell? How does it all end? I guess as always you need to read the book! Luckily, Maxine will explain it all to you. This is the perfect book to read aloud before a writing unit. It will engage even the most reluctant reader/writers. 32 pages Ages 5-8
