What makes a writer? What inspires them? Where do their stories come from? Striking illustrations and a popular graphic novel format bring to life this anthology of literary legends and their childhoods.

Featuring beloved authors such as Maya Angelou, C.S.

Lewis, Gene Luen Yang and J.K. Rowling, these stories capture the childhood triumphs, failures, and inspirations that predated their careers. Children ages ten and up will see themselves in these humanised portraits and wonder if they, too, might have it in them to write.

A celebration of creativity, this collective graphic biography is sprinkled throughout with writing wisdom and inspiring quotes.
