- Creating vivid pictures is key for good writing. When student writers rely primarily on vague statements, adjectives, and adverbs, their writing doesn't score well on tests, and worse, can sound generic, voiceless, and dull.
- In this book, a teacher/writer/cartoonist provides tools for helping students write about people, places, events, and abstractions. The goal is to help their readers see, hear, smell, touch, and taste their topics.
- The author demonstrates ways to use figurative language, movie techniques, moment-by-moment narration, hypothetical scenarios, and dialogue to make any kind of writing come alive on the page.
