My Weird Writing Tips by Dan Gutman

The ability to put thoughts into writing is an essential skill vital to success in school—from elementary school through college. Bestselling author Dan Gutman helps kids master this important skill with his fun, informative writing guide, My Weird Writing Tips.
Dan offers tricks for spelling hard words, understanding the difference between similar words like “its” and “it’s,” and conquering grammar stumbling blocks like commas and apostrophes. He also teaches readers how to write an engaging story, in line with the grades 2–5 Common Core goals for writing a narrative. 
With illustrated appearances from A.J. and Andrea, stars of his bestselling My Weird School series, and with his trademark wacky sense of humor, Dan makes learning the writing and storytelling basics so fun kids will forget they’re learning.

My Weird Writing Tips is hilarious and super helpful! I took away several good tips from this easy to read book: How to not sound like a "dumbhead" when I write, how to get rid of writer's block, and how to cut the "hooptedoodle" out of your story. I have enjoyed Mr. Gutman's Genius Files books and highly recommend this how-to book for anyone who wants to write a little better. Recommended for boys and girls ages 8-12. Thank you to HarperCollins Children's books for this fun and informative book!
