This book introduces readers to writing stories that revolve around animals. Readers are shown how animals can be used in stories, top tips are given, and readers are guided through the process of writing their own story. Engaging photographs, eye-catching illustrations, and a wealth of ideas bring the topic to life. An animal story running throughout the book draws readers in, offers concrete examples of how the tips can be put into practice and will inspire readers to get writing their own animal stories.
