Sid Fleischman recounts his journey to becoming a writer. The twists and turns on his path lead to unexpected career changes, with becoming a writer being one of them. While growing up during the Great Depression, he decided to become a magician and taught himself by reading library books about the subject. He was stationed on a cruiser during World War II, wrote for a newspaper, became a screenplay writer, and he finally became an author of children’s books. In the book, he provides pointers for those aspiring to become writers themselves, even though this was not a thought he had while still in school.
