This is a wonderful book for anyone; I give it an enthusiastic five stars. Both my fantasy-reading teen and I loved it. We are both very visual so really appreciated the explanatory illustrations, which you can see in the photos below. There is also a lot of text here, but it is broken up in smaller chunks. Additionally, there are page spreads of tips written by professionals in the trade.
This is an amazing resource for a homeschooler interested in writing fiction, but it is also very interesting for all lovers of fiction, enabling them to gain a better understanding of all that goes into this craft.
This book is a total delight; take this thick, detailed work slowly and treasure and contemplate every morsel.
