Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-Hart begins with a short chapter about how animals stand and walk. He then demonstrates, in three to four steps each, how to draw 45 different cartoon creations. For each figure, he starts with basic shapes and then adds increasing amounts of detail. His instructions show only line drawings and do not demonstrate how to shade or show texture, but do include a final colorized cartoon. The book is organized into topics, the largest of which is African animals; more than half of the creatures portrayed are well-known mammals, along with birds, reptiles, and sea creatures. This is a good choice for kids who want to learn to draw but are intimidated by the more detailed how-to books such as Lee J. Ames's Draw 50 Animals (Doubleday, 1985). It will also appeal to children who want to create cartoons. This promises to be a popular item.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for kids between 6 and 9 years old.

I wanted a book that the kids could follow by themselves and feel proud about it. It worked.

The selection of animals is wide and has a little of everything.

The illustrations are attractive and have a feeling of more realistic than cartooning.

All instructions are explain in 3 to 4 steps.

The quality of the paper is above average.

Great purchase.

Excellent book and highly recommended. Both of my children love this book. They are both very interested in animals and this book covers this better than any I've seen. This book covers many animals with very interesting poses - don't hestitate to pick it up.

Like this book because,not only does it show how to do basic drawing of many animals, but it also explains physical attributes of an animal. This helps in understanding how to draw. Also included are different facts on the life of each animal. This book is not for the advanced artist, but for someone who wants to know how to start drawing animals.

I bought a series of drawing books for young children and shared them with my grandchildren and neighbors. I thought this book might be a little too advanced but the seven-year-olds were soon ready for it and just loved it. It is amazing what they can do - they filled sheets and sheets of paper with impressive animals. My granddaughter took it to her second grade and made a report on it and the teacher wanted a copy and then flashed it on the board and let the whole class try. It was very popular. I bought the teacher a copy and also one for a neighbor. It seems I keep ordering copies of this book! Highly recommended.
