'My son is always trying to get me to draw him pictures. Before we got the book I could hardly draw a stick figure, now my 4yr old son and I can draw great pictures. We have already enjoyed hours of fun with this book' - review from amazon.com

OK, I'm a big fan of Emberly, as should be apparent to anyone who's read any of my other reviews, but the salient detail about this book was left out of the other reviews: It consists entirely and only of excerpts from the Big Orange books. You don't really need this if you have the Orange book.
Perhaps worse is that it's not even =all= the Halloween material from the Big Orange book, so even if you wanted to get it because your kids were fighting over who got to use the orange book, this may not help. It contains none of the monsters from the green or purple books, and despite the color of the cover, there are no red pictures. Just orange.
This might be a good book to introduce someone to Emberly's work, though around Halloween, being cheap.

Ed Emberley books are excellent for the little artist who wants perfection before picking up a crayon. i have three boys and each of them can create the finished image. sometimes, they are dead on and other times, they have gone there and altered that. in all cases, they are very proud to reproduce a printed image by a Real Artist and at the same time, they learn proportions and methods for attaining the final image. great book for any person. i use it for Halloween gift bags every year (as in i follow the directions and draw these guys on bags for our guests.) fun for all ages!

Ed Emberley is just fantastic. I had only one or two of his books as a child (30-ish years ago) and once I found out there were more, I bought everyone I could find. My girls really enjoy them (now almost teens). The step by step approach to taking shapes they're familiar with and putting them together to make such cute drawings helps them to branch out into drawings of their own. We leave notes for each other and put something we learned to draw from EE's books on the note - brightens everyone's day!

I grew up using Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Animals. I somehow managed to keep it until my first child was born (it was my favorite childhood book), but without supervision, it was destroyed/lost/gone. When my second child turned 4, I started looking for a replacement and was thrilled to see all the different Ed Emberley books available now! These books take you shape by shape through the drawing. Each drawing is short and simple, keeping your child's attention and giving them a great result without discouraging extra detail. I recommend these books to anyone with pre-schoolers, they're awesome!

I have one grandson that loves to draw so I bought him several of these drawing books. He loves the fact that it gives him step by step instructions on how to draw something which gives him the confidence to try even more by himself.

I teach third grade. I use these books to teach my kids to draw illustrations for the stories they write. They love the books so much that two things are happening: they are either falling apart or they are disappearing. So I am gradually replacing the whole set!

Whenever Christmas or a birthday is approaching, my kids know that an Ed Emberley drawing book is on its way. We all love these books and have collected quite a few of them now. This year I decided to buy them one for Halloween.

To say that Ed Emberley's drawing books are BRILLIANT is an understatement. They are really fantastic, teaching you step by step how to draw a myriad of objects and animals following very easy steps. If you are capable of drawing a few simple shapes such as a triangle, a circle or an arc, then you can draw everything shown in the book.

In this book Ed Emberley has grouped together some weird beings and objects that are typically associated with Halloween. Do you want to learn how to draw bats? skeletons? witches mixing their couldron? monsters? black cats? or spiders? Following very easy steps this book teaches you how to draw all these and many others. Things you thought very difficult will prove extremely easy to draw.

I highly recommend these drawing books to everyone, young and adult, but especially to kids like mine who are always at the table with their colours doodling on papers.

This book is good but has similar drawings found in the Orange book, so one may need to only purchase one of these books. I think that the Orange book offers more of a selection of different things to draw. Some of the drawings in the Halloween book are complex and would be better suited for older children.
