MY REVIEW: I got this for my 10 year old son, who has been enjoying watching videos and drawing the cartoons from voice instructions. I don’t know if this is a little above his level or if he just prefers hearing instructions, but this has proven a little harder for him to follow than the videos he is used to. I think it’s a wonderful book, though, and I recommend it for anyone who has an interest in drawing and would like a step-by-step instruction to help them get started.
