Grade 2–6—In this follow-up to How to Draw Cartoon Animals
(Watson-Guptill, 1995), Hart shows young artists how to draw an impressive array of creatures. He includes many different animals, such as bears, penguins, horses, dogs, and cats, as well as a variety of breeds. In the introduction, Hart explains that this book includes edgier styles and more retro characters than his first book. The step-by-step, black-and-white outlines are accessible to beginning artists as well as those with more experience. The humorous and engaging characters include different cartoon "types" such as the evil genius or ultra-cute kitten, and there is a wide range of facial expressions as well. The simple text that accompanies each drawing explains the artist's choices and focuses readers' attention on important details in each drawing. Children will love this thorough and easy-to-use how-to guide.—Mari Pongkhamsing, St. Perpetua School, Lafayette, CA
