I am 9 years old and love to draw. This book tells you how to draw a lot of famous cartoons. Some of the ones I like the best are PopEye, Flintstones and Scooby Doo. If you like to draw, you will enjoy this book.

The Lee Ames series of books are good if you already have the basics of drawing down and some minor artist skills. They show how to take your basic skills and make some neat stuff. But this book is basically 1 page to a cartoon star, and about 6 drawings on the page to get a completed look. For some simple ones it works but on others it gets a little tricky. No text instructions here, just the drawings which you are just copying. If you want to LEARN how to draw and get the basic skills first whether you are kid or an adult, the books by Jack Hamm and Ed Emberly are the best place to start. They can make anyone an artist. Then come back to books like Ames.

Kids like to duplicate what they know, it helps them to connect to popular art. So this drawing book has 50 characters from popular cartoons for them to copy. They did a great job with the final art and the choice of characters from comic strips and comic books. You may need some basic skills before you try some of these. If you don't have these yet that's OK, we all have to startt somewhere. I might suggest you try Ed Emberly's books (like "the Big Green Drawing Book") or Mark Kistler's books or videos, the best places to start learning to draw. A book like this is more useful when you have some very basic drawing skills, then use a book like this to practice and hone your skills with.

This book is great fun! I have enjoyed all the different characters covered in the book. Some have been flashbacks to a misspent youth watching too many Saturday morning cartoons. Others are completely new and alien to me. The one criticism I would have of this book is no Betty Rubble. The have Fred and Wilma, Barney and Dino, freakin' Dino! but no Betty. Otherwise I have had a blast with this book and expect a lot more enjoyable time working on the material in it.

My newphew loves cartoons AND drawing, so when he got this for Christmas, he couldn't believe his luck. Every time he comes over, the first thing he does is pull it out of the closet and practice his skills (keeps him quiet too)! He can't wait to finish it so he can get a new drawing book!

My granddaughter has taken up drawing, and she wanted to try cartoons. So I got this, and she loves the different cartoons she can draw. I got her a variety of books, for her use. Fast delivery, packaged well, no problems ordering from this site again. Thank you!

My 7 yr old granddaughter loves to draw, so this booklet was helpful to her. It showed her the progression, when drawing several familiar cartoons, which is a different way of drawing for her.
