Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6 -This how-to guide is a step above the average cartooning instruction book. The glossy, full-color pages are visually attractive. The clean layout with colored borders at the top and bottom of every page and bold text headings directs readers' eyes to the text. Roche's engaging writing style is informative and fun. He encourages youngsters to experiment with tools and techniques and, unlike many other such books, does not ask them to learn or mimic a specific style. His loose, spacious cartooning style is perfect for beginners or kids who might be intimidated by more detail-oriented techniques. While the subtitle may not be completely true, this is a wonderful resource for libraries looking to update their cartooning collections.-Steev Baker, Kewaskum Public Library, WI

This is unlike any other cartooning book past or present. Too many cooks of this genre show you the standard "draw an oval and a triangle and now you have a duck!" or "draw like I do!" instructions. Art Roche's book teaches kids to think, to imagine, to be funny. Art gives readers the tools to pursue their styles, not his. It's an easy read, full of great illustrations, and humorous examples. Art Roche makes anyone from from 4 to 84 want to pick up a pencil and have fun! Great gift for any kid or kid at heart.

My 12-year-old picked up this book and devoured it in one sitting, reporting it helped him conquer some of the problems he had encountered as a recreational cartoonist. He especially enjoyed the section devoted to writing.

This is a gorgeous book - hardcover with color on every page. Great art, lively text, and very inspiring - it works as both a "how-to" and personal cartooning cheerleader.

I got this as a gift for a kid, but wished I could just keep it. It has all sorts of practical tips, including info about what sorts of pencils, erasers & pens to use, and it's full of great illustrations. (The kid really seemed to like it.)
