I just wanted to share the good news about the publication of my new interactive comic book for boys entitled Your Life in Comics: 100 Things for Guys to Write and Draw. The book has pages of situations in which readers fill in the characters' thought and talk balloons and point of view. Other activities encourage boys to draw full pages of comic strips with help from word and picture prompts. The book is geared for reluctant writers ages 9-13 and is part of my body of work over the years to help young people find their writers' voices. You can find samples from the book at my web site: http://www.billztreasurechest.com/life_in_comics.html
and also print pages from the book which you can use with young people. The publisher (Free Spirit) also offers free pages that can be downloaded at www.freespirit.com/comics
I hope you'll try it out with your students and give me feedback.
All good wishes,
