Adventure Stories

by Ruth Thomson

Part of a Series: It’s Fun to Write.

This volume introduces students to the adventure genre through the presentation of four stories that serve as springboards for various creative writing exercises. The simple yet imaginative tales each fill one spread and exemplify themes and structures that are characteristic of the genre. Four pages of activities follow each story. (For example, readers are prompted to create a recipe, a “Wanted!” poster, and a news report; they are also encouraged to retell the stories by changing certain details.) Plentiful illustrations keep the text lively and accessible. Back matter includes additional writing ideas and a grammar glossary.
