5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Jan. 28 2010
By Writing Mom - Published on Amazon.com
This book gives writers a comprehensive guide to writing both fiction and nonfiction. It covers everything from what the market looks like to research, types of fiction, submissions, and publication - and much more. I gleaned several tips from this book and highly recommend it to other authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative April 5 2011
By KaelebsMomma - Published on Amazon.com
Today I started and finished reading The Giblin Guide to Writing Children's Books. James Giblin offers guidance to new and experienced writers in this helpful book. He takes the time to explain the writing process in detail from the planning to putting pen on paper and finally, publishing and beyond.

I felt like this book was very informative and will prove to be useful to me as I begin my journey as a writer. I feel like this book offers important facts that I will refer back to many times in my future.

Mr. Giblin uses a matter of fact approach in his writing. He is forthcoming and honest, which I appreciate. He also clarifies everything so there is no question as to what his intentions were. His writing comes across clear and concise.

I believe this book would be enlightening and educational for anyone taking a writing course or struggling with writing. You don't have to be a beginning author to make use of the information contained on the pages within this book. However, if you are a beginning writer, I urge you to get a copy of this book to keep on hand. Read it and you'll find that there will be areas that you'll reference back to during your potential career.

I'm glad I sat down to read this book. I think that it will be a blessing in disguise for me and I thank Mr. Giblin for taking the time to allow us an in depth look inside his thoughts. It's certainly a priceless contribution if you take advantage of the advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Giblin Guide to Writing Children's Books Oct. 6 2013
By Doris T. Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I've ever read on writing for children.
Mr. Giblin writes from the perspective of both the aspiring writer and
the experienced editor. His advice is clear and concise. If you can
buy only one book on this subject, buy Giblin's Guide.

Textbooks are always going to be overpriced but it is what it is. The book is in good condition, too.
