In S is for Story: A Writer's Alphabet, author and writing coach Esther Hershenhorn uses the alphabet to help explain, explore, and examine the tools, techniques, and strategies for those hoping to live the literary life. Writing terms and topics are explained using a two-tier format. C is for the Character, every story's star, the one for whom we cheer, we care, with whom we travel far. Specific genres, story elements (setting and plot), and the mechanics of how to write (including editing and revision) are covered, while quotes from famous authors provide examples of the writer's thought process. Budding writers of all ages will be inspired to put pen to paper (or fingers on keyboards)! Author, and writing coach, Esther Hershenhorn admits S is for Story is the book she wishes she'd owned as a little girl, dreaming of a writing career. She lives in Chicago, where she teaches Writing for Children at the University of Chicago's Writer's Studio and the Newberry Library.

Nathan tells the penguin that the worst thing he can do is to strike back saying, "two wrongs never make a right." Then one day, an elephant wanders into the lagoon,fills his trunk with water and playfully sprays a huge stream at Nathan. Nathan's first reaction is to get angry. But, with the penguin watching, Nathan decides to follow his own advice and looks the elephant right in the eye and tells him what he's doing is wrong. The elephant is apologetic. Then, when the hyena is about to splash the penguin, he copies Nathan and tells the hyena not to splash him again. Nathan's behavior demonstrates it's better to speak up to bullies than to strike back.
