Grade 3-6A series addition for amateur artists. After a brief introduction, each page features a creature or vehicle to draw, accompanied by detailed sketches that progress logically. At times, however, the green pencil used in the illustrations is too light to show the added lines clearly. The figures vary in difficulty so that novices will not be discouraged and more experienced children will be challenged. The bizarre space characters with funny names are sure to please artists of any age.Michele Snyder, Chappaqua Public Library, NY

Gr. 3^-5. Drawing aliens! Of course, this volume promises to be a popular entry in the long-running Draw 50 series. Each page offers six to nine stages in drawing a particular creature, with new lines in each sketch made darker to guide children in copying the drawings step-by-step. The artists identify each alien with a name and a bit of imaginative description, such as "Nayzzel Likkinhulk: a savage from the environment of the Oort cloud." The book's lightly comic tone and high-interest subject will encourage children to try at least some of the suggested drawings. A paperback that will probably see high circulation. Carolyn Phelan
