Rip The Page! is an interactive writing workbook for children ages 8 to 12, offering a dynamic approach to language, ideas, and writing. Full of innovative exercises, inspiring ideas, and word lists to launch many writing adventures, this book encourages children to explore their own creative ideas and get writing. With a dynamic design and space in the book to write, this is a guide that children can work with easily. The book includes advice, writing samples, and endorsements from published poets and writers including Naomi Shihab Nye, Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler), Gary Soto, Annie Barrows, Lucille Clifton, Karen Cushman, Patricia Polacco, and others.

Rip the Page! is an invitation and a feast. Every page springs the imagination into freedom, eagerness, curiosity, the spirit of experimentation, and the power to express the abundant possibilities of both words and world.”–Jane Hirshfield, poet and author of Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry

“Alive with ideas, playful, encouraging, and full of heart, Rip the Page! will help you uncover stories of inner treasure and express them in a fresh new way.”–Susan Wooldridge, author of Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing
