   A Must-Have
I love this book so much! I have been critical of non-traditionally released works, but this book is an exception. The author knows clearly the world of the early primary students in a workshop model. I recommend this book for use in any classroom K-3. The back end-pages could make awesome writing prompts on demand or choose-your-own starters for a fiction piece. I use this as a mentor text for my writing workshop without fail every year. The children refer to the characters and the author's craft when they talk about their own work. The illustrations are sweet, simple and child-like and inspire children to not be too intimidated to try to make their own stories. I would love to see more books published by this author! One for the reader's workshop perhaps as well?
   So funny! This engaging story will motivate your child or ...
This engaging story will motivate your child or student to keep on trying when writing is difficult. Throughout the main plot, the adorable character learns that he really DOES have a story to tell and he can tell it. I would highly recommend this read-aloud when you teach writing to young children and want to encourage them to continue!
   Great inspiration for reluctant writers.
This book popped up on Amazon somewhere and was fairly inexpensive so that I thought it was worth a try. I was not disappointed. My class loved it and we went back to it when children hit the wall and just couldn t write.
   If you teach writing, get this book!
One of the best books ever written for teaching children to write about themselves and others. My students and I love this story absolutely. I read it at least 4 times to my class. This is a keeper!
   very cute
Her 3rd graders have a hard time writing stories.
   Kids writer's block
Looking forward to reading this with my 8 year old grandson, who had a great break in reading interest this year.
   Adorable story, but...
The story is cute, but on my 1st generation kindle fire, all the little speech bubbles are almost impossible to read, and I can 't zoom on them. Quite frustrating for my child, who wants to know what every word says on the page!
   We love all of Abby's stories
In the end, Ralph writes a hundred pages and the Stagger doesn '' even works for all the stories he wrote. The Inch - Story was very fun, said my 6 year old. Abby's characters, both written and illustrated, are fun, imperfect and overcome relatable difficulties. The mix of typed font with the comic style is engaging and encourages reading. We read all these stories more times than we can count and they remain a permanent favorite with my kids. We can 't wait for the next one.
   Well done
Love this book absolutely ''. As someone who teaches children with specialized needs and fighting writers, I appreciated how rich and full can be a story even for someone who insists nothing can ever happen to them.
   The Title, She Don’t Lie.
I mean a story is told. It thus lives up to the title. My Grammy says that a story well told is like a blessing, unless it is stupid and pointless. That reminds me of the other day when Grammy wanted to eat some shredded wheat. I don 't know why. We do it just. I didn 't come here to be judged. I then went to Jeffers Grocery and Sundries. I came home and we ate them with goat milk and sundried tomatoes.
