What It Is
For every kid who has wanted to create the next Great American Novel-or just tell a cool story-this kit is just the thing to get them started! Future authors have the chance to publish their own book with the IlluStory Make Your Own Story Kit. Just write and illustrate the story, then send it off to be published. (There is a correct spelling option that allows a choice between leaving spelling errors in or having the words printed correctly.) In a few short weeks the budding writer receives a color-copied, professionally typeset hardbound book, complete with an "About the Author" page and title and dedication pages-just like a real book! The kit includes 18 book pages, two cover pages, 10 washable markers, a story web planner, instructions, an order form, and a prepaid envelope for sending off your child's finished story. This innovative kit nurtures enthusiasm for reading, writing, and illustrating, as well as builds kids' self-esteem when they see their words and drawings bound within the pages of a professional-looking book.
