Doodletopia: Cartoons by Christopher Hart

Does someone in your family like to draw?  This book is simple, practical, and offers you not only the guidelines but space to practice your skills.  It's great introduction to cartoons.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.  It has been published so you can get a copy now.

Each chapter takes you through a different exercise in drawing.  I'm not very talented in that department but I think the instructions are easy enough to follow and I might even be able to create some art.  Even if you aren't exact, you can pretend you meant to do that on purpose, you see...

The chapters are as follows:

Introduction Warm Up
Fill in the Silhouette
Draw the Other Half
Select Different Expressions
Choose and Design the Animals
Dress Up Your Cartoons
Finish the Funny Couples
Write in Cartoon Calligraphy
Draw Ridiculous Inventions
Complete the Cartoons

My favorite part is that there are blank pages in the book for you to draw.  You just need a pencil.

There are all  kinds of characters in this book, something for everyone.  Why not surprise your young one with an activity book like this?
