Years ago, I wrote a model companion book for the story “The Stolen Party.”
For a fully editable copy of that companion book, click here: Author’s Craft in “The Stolen Party” Model Companion Book 1/5
This series of Google Slides teaches students the author’s crafts moves I used in that model.
This is the bundle of that series. Buying the bundle (all five) saves you $3.00.
If you’d rather purchase only one or two of the chapter models, check them out in the links below.

Here is what students will learn/review in each section.
1. What a companion book is, how to write a title with a subtitle separated by a colon, what to include in an introduction to a companion book, stylistic fragments, brackets for changing quotations, parallel structure, and quick reminder of MLA citation.
2. The grammatical structure of a title with a subtitle, parallel structure, MLA citation, definition of a coming of age theme, avoiding “I say this because”, “this shows that”, “the text states” etc., dramatic irony, always write in the present tense about literature.
3. The difference between a companion book and literary analysis essay, hard pauses with dashes etc., symbolism, and author’s purpose.
4. Show don’t tell, parallel structure to build suspense, parallel structure to describe a character, and brackets in quotes reminder.
5. What one would typically find in a companion book, staying true to characters in extensions, the uses of the ellipsis, putting inner thoughts in italics, and the importance of the opening and closing of any piece of writing.
