I have given this book to four different children ranging in ages from 5 to 10 and it has an instant effect of stimulating them to draw. The images are designed and stylized in a way that children can relate to compared to most books on how to draw animals. Mostly they have instructions with a lot of circles and then immediately superimpose an extremely realistic, complicated drawing that most children can't relate to.
I was a professional artist/designer and can highly recommend this book for children. It keeps them entranced for hours!

Was alright. Some of the animals in here are just a head. There was also a zebra that was just it's back end?

I guess I was also expecting some sort of direction. But I guess it did give me some ideas. Artwork is very simple and cute. Works well if you like to trace or eyeball things. :)

The title led me to believe there would be some guidance on sketching these creatures since it stated "draw 500 awesome animals", however, it is simply a collection of someone's renderings. No text. No way to determine how to draw these. If the title had stated, "here are pictures that I drew", I wouldn't have been disappointed.

This book is very small. However, it was a hit with my 8 year old daughter who loves to draw animals. It does not give step by step directions for drawing the animals. It just shows a very simplified drawing that is easy to copy. I wasnt thrilled with this book, but it is what the description says it is. I would recommend this for a child, however I think an adult purchasing this for themselves would be disappointed.

Let me start by admiting that I didn't mean to buy this. I'm honestly not sure how I did<<… any who, I don't think this is a great book for learning to draw. The pictures are very modern with no steps. Many of the pictures lack outlines and look like screen press. However, I like this as a picture book for kids, so I'm not going to return it.
