This lively new book introduces the power of the storyboard in the creative process — from brainstorming ideas to developing, revising, and finalizing stories. It describes an eight-stage process that shows, step-by-step, how students can create unique, action-filled pages for their stories and books. Planning suggestions, glossaries of visual terms, and ready-to-copy storyboards are all a part of the active process described. The detailed, yet light-hearted approach will inspire creativity and add vitality to any task or project.

Mark Thurman is best known as a children's author/illustrator. He has written and illustrated 16 books and designed and illustrated more than 25 books for other authors.
