Ben Woodard about this book: On a recent elementary school author visit, I asked the students to help me write a story challenging them to use techniques that they learned in school and during my visit. We took fifteen or twenty minutes at the end of each session and made up a story with the children coming up with ideas and shouting them out. I guided them through the process and their teacher wrote down the outline. Together the students and I wrote five stories. Stories of dragons, witches, unicorns, time travel and aliens. Stories of kids having adventures and fighting the bad guys. I took the stories and edited them trying to stay true to the children's ideas, and molding them into a completed story. What a great time I had! I enjoyed writing these stories much more than any books I have done and I think we came up with fun stories of adventure and excitement that readers of all ages will enjoy.
