Battle Bunny

I have been editing with the children, really encouraging them to take extreme measures to change develop their writing.  This isn't easy.  Who likes to look for things to do better when you think you have done the best you could at the start.  Writing isn't like that.  You get a great piece of work out of revision. 

This book is fantastic, as the bunny changes his birthday story into a battle story.  Fantastic for both boys and girls.  The bunny has written all over the pages and included pictures to emphasis the thought.  The story changes to an amazing little piece of action.  I was smiling the whole way through.  Most of all I was impressed by the concept of changing the story and the way the illustrations made it a work of art. 

I had to get this book to show the kids a great piece of editing along with a great picture book.

This was available from: Fishpond, Book depositiory and Amazon
