How To Draw 101 Cartoon characters (Top That! Publishing, 2012)
Our copy of this is extremely tatty, despite being only four months old because MG has flicked through, drawn on and coloured in throughout the book! MG is five and this book is probably too ‘old’ for her but it’s still useful for her to see stages of drawings building up. She’s not used it as intended, choosing to attempt to finish the step-by-step pictures in the book and colouring in the final pictures. DG has also joined in with scribbles…
The book does exactly what it says! It gives 101 4-6 (mostly six) step cartoon characters which are relatively straightforward to copy and improvise from. This book would be more suited to children 8+ I think, and still be enjoyed by teenagers and adults! It’s fun for younger children, and some younger children may enjoy attempting the steps but my two are more free-range in their art so preferred to do things their own way – and still loved the book!
