Dan is the "voice of Basher" - the best-selling children's science series created by the graphic artist Basher (basherbooks.com/usa/home.html).

Format: Paperback
I've been looking for a way to get my kids interested in drawing, I ordered the books (101 Monsters, 101 Funny People & 101 Animals) and pretended like I bought them for myself, my 6 year old son saw me drawing and asked what I was doing "oh, just learning to draw monsters" he called up his older brother and they asked me if they could try, "sure" they took the book and spent hours drawing that day.

I gave them one book each week to keep their interested, I started asking them to make their own stories using the books, they usually use all three to make a story.

This was really a great buy!

Format: Paperback
The good: This is a fun drawing guide for kids (and adults, too) that shows, step-by-step, how to make simple, stylized outline drawings of 101 funny people, everything from artist to waiter, baby to granddad, burglar to sheriff. Several of these drawing books have kept the preschooler and teenager in our household entertained for hours; this one is a little challenging for the five-year old but still fun.

The details: For the most part, two funny people are featured per page. For each character, there are six frames showing how to make a simple outline drawing. The first frame shows the basic outline of the animal, of the head or hair; additional detail is added in each frame, and the sixth frame shows the completed drawing. For several of the characters, there are only four frames in the guide.

There is a wide variety of characters featured, including:

athletes (surfer, high jumper, weightlifter, skateboarder, tennis player, and all of the basics -- football, baseball, etc.)

musicians (conductor, African musician, opera singer)

health care professionals (doctor, nurse, dentist)

service professionals (mechanic, builder, teacher, baker, fireman . . . )

other professions (actor, cowboy, Flamenco dancer, judge, fisherman, scientist . . . )

historical figures (king, queen, pharoah, Greek scholar, Greek soldier, Roman emperor, Victorian lady . . . )

different nationalities (Arab, Chinese lady -- though she looks like a Japanese geisha to me -- , Eskimo)

The drawbacks: The characters appear in the book in random order -- the clown is next to the pharaoh, the chef and elf share a page. Organizing the characters alphabetically or in some other meaningful manner would be useful.

I use this whole series in my Art Class to Elementary children. They love this extra activity. It builds their confidence that they can draw identifible things. They even take multiple instructions and create a whole picture. I ripped the book apart and laminated the pages into easy to use cards. Works great!

My eight year old daughter loves this book and I love it as well. But it is too frustrating for my six year old son.

I bought it because my son like to draw but needed a few ideas that were easy to do on his own as opposed to copying. The books format allows kids (and adults) to really do some cute things with pictures.

Very pleased with this How to Draw Book. Our Grandchildren--ages 5 and 7--- sat down and immediately started drawing people from the book. I was amazed! Easy directions for them to understand.

Unlike most drawing books, this one starts at the head and goes down to the bottom, so it's easy to misjudge the proportions and have really short legs. The cartoons are not that great. I sent mine back. If you're expecting step-by-step, this is not it. Each photo advances about 10 steps. You have to guess what goes next.
