Thrice Told Tales: Three Mice Full of Writing Advice

Thrice Told TalesHow many ways can the Three Blind Mice nursery rhyme be retold and embellished?  A lot!  The mice take over this story and teach literary devices such as point of view, cause and effect, and ambiguity.  It doesn’t seem like any writing element, device, or style has been left out in this clever, highly informative 144 pages.  Each literary device is clearly labeled, then the Three Blind Mice story is embellished with a sentence or several pages, followed by a “Snip of the Tale” summary of the lesson.  Despite the illustrations and the nursery rhyme motif, this is best for teens and adults.  Clever!  Highly recommend.
