Here's another great review of The Children's Writer's Guide.
"Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Presented in an engaging manner, much like the author himself, this book is a straight forward manual that will encourage even the most timid writer to follow through on their creative dreams. The chapters are well laid out, filled with strategies, and delivered in a conversational tone that never overwhelms the reader. There is an implied message of confidence in this book that is very reassuring to a beginner writer. Highly recommend it."
