Reviews

"Writing Magic is a great introduction to writing for children. The "voice" is upbeat and not condescending. It is clearly written, and includes examples when they are needed. As far as I know, there is nothing else like this available."--Harold Underdown
"A veritable treasure trove of advice and guidance for writers across a range of ages."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"What comes through on every page is Levine's passion for craft. Aspiring writers of all ages can dip in and out of this book, which has the clarity and sparseness of Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird."--Publishers Weekly
"Levine is a friendly mentor in these pages."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
