It is certainly refreshing to have a book live up to its promise, but this book, like all Klutz books, is worth every dollar. Having worked through about half the book currently, I am already enjoying drawing, sketching, and just plain doodling with more enthusiasm than when I was a kid! Certainly a great idea for geniune children and the young at heart as well.

This a wonderfully constucted (board covers and spiral bound) book that comes with pencils. The book is about drawing and meant to be drawn upon...what a combo!
There is instuction in the book but it's subtle and never says *a sky should look like this and a dog like this*. It's more about the joy of drawing and just getting started than it is about how to draw anything in a line by line way. A great thing for kids as they get to develope their own style.
That isn't to say there aren't lessons to be learned (perspective, shading, faces...showing movement, etc) The book is set up with small amounts of text and drawings (almost doodles) on the pages with the expectation that you will draw your own designs on the blank spaces. One thing I just love is that the pictures they included as examples are very sketchy and loose... simple and quickly drawn. Nothing that anyone would look at and say "I could never do that!" about. I think that is wonderful. I have seen too many how to draw books where the results look nothing short of professional and when I buy them for my son he just looks at them and thinks he could never duplicate the result. Its intimidating and he won't even try.
with this book... The examples, looking more like doodles, are very inviting and non-threatening. Almost inviting you to add your own. Perfect!
The text is helpful and humorous. Some pages there is very little and others...there is more but it's all friendly and conversational. This is a real winner!

This book is an encouraging work by quirky illustrator Quentin Blake. The reader is encouraged to try drawing, and to enjoy what comes out of the pencil/pen! Blake's writing is as humorous as his drawings, and not disappointingly, his drawings linger near the edges of each page beckoning you to draw companions for them.
I would recommend this book to anyone too embarrassed about her stick figures to ever draw one in public, but who secretly cherishes a desire to doodle with style.

Bought for my 7 year old Grandaughter who's the only one in the family that is not artistically challanged. She has spent hours reading and using the ideas in the book. Improved her confidence 100%. Would recommend to all for child who really wants to draw but doesn't understand you don't have to end up with a picture like a photograph.

This is a wonderful book on drawing, and I would recommend it to anyone whose age ranges between 10 and 100.The author gives plenty of ideas for those who are shy at first, but they are written with a small types so if you don't need help you are not forced to have it , and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
However I would not give it to yopung children for two reasons. Reason number one is that children younger than ten express themselves through drawing. The way they draw a tree, for example, tells us a lot about their personality. No instruction should be given before age 8. Reason number two is the instructions are a bit difficult for kids up to third grade.
I suggest teacher should use this book as an art connection inside a Roald Dahl author study.

I'm fourty-something and decided I wanted to learn to draw. Picking up that pencil and looking at a blank piece of paper is intimidating. This book helped me break through some anxiety and me doodling in no time. After a week with the book I ended up at an art supply store buying pencils in other colors and different diameter art pens. I don't know how long this would have taken me without this book. Adult-ed drawing classes are next!

This book is so cute! It allows you to draw, and you don't give up hope because your drawings don't match that of the pictures. The drawings are simple, and good for both the young and old just beginning to draw.

I'm a former commercial artist & I think this book is great. I really wish my mom had given me a book like this when I was a kid. It's fun & very inspirational for a budding artist. Gives easy step by steps and has a way of making whatever the kids draw look great. Unfortunately my kids don't draw, not even a little bit (I've thrown away stacks of coloring books with only connect the dots done, in pencil). I was hoping this would inspire them, but I don't think it's possible.
