What did I think?

This is not the first book by Lexi Rees that I am lucky to review. Earlier this year I was happy to join the blog tour for The Book Dragon Club and I loved it so much that I couldn’t wait to browse the pages of Wicked Writing Skills.

The book is aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11 so, once again, both myself and my daughter are not its target audience. But we will be one day, and I am looking forward to help her navigate the incredible writing opportunities that this book presents.

While her previous book, Creative Writing Skills (which I also have and eagerly wait to use) expands on the concepts like character, setting, plot and dialogue, Wicked Writing Skills explores different kinds of non-fiction writing, like marketing texts, newspaper articles and titles and many more.

This is a treasure chest of a book and you will be sure to find the right ‘exercise’ for the right moment! Plus, the cute illustrations and fonts make it fun and enticing for children… and adults, let’s admit it!
