For each animal, there are 20 illustrated examples and empty space left on the pages to draw on. The artworks are really nice and aimed at kids. They are a mixture of black and white line art, line art with colours, and full coloured drawings. They are nothing too complicated and anyone can just look at them and draw, either follow in style or come up with one from imagination. There are a total of 900 drawings.
The book comes with a special binding allows it to be laid down perfectly flat for drawing.
It's a fun activity book for kids. I read on Amazon there's a teacher who bought the book for ideas on drawing also.
Please note that this is a sourcebook of illustrations and not a step-by-step guide on drawing. The "Look Inside" feature pretty much shows what you're going to get in this book - a page or two of various illustrations of one type of animal with some blank space to draw your own interpretations. If you want a step-by-step, learn how to draw guide, then you'll find this book frustrating and inadequate for that purpose. This is a great book if you are looking for inspiration and visual ideas and not so much a how-to.
