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.
