5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent inspirational book 12 Dec 2001
Although intended for children, the drawing exercises in this book are good enough for anyone who thinks they can't draw. It is fun to work through, and the children I have bought copies for just love it. I really want to do it myself now!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great confidence improver! 4 April 2003
By A Customer
Although this book does help you to improve skills and learn technique, it's main (very successful, in my case!) aim seems to be to help you develop your confidence and simply enjoy drawing. I heartily recommend it for all ages!

I originally saw this in a children's bookshop - but it is far too good for children. It restores the childish joy of drawing and copying things simply for fun to anybody. I bought a copy for my wife as a Christmas present, and for the first time in her life she is happily sketching for pleasure. A wonderful boost to the self-confidence, and a real treat for the inner child!
Buy it for everybody you know who thinks that they are talentless when it comes to art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes drawing hilarious 28 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Quentin Blake and John Cassidy's approach to teaching drawing is thoroughly absorbing and takes the "I can't" out of it. More about expression than literal, photographic representation , this is a book to have fun with; to draw all over and try things out.
I keep having to hide it as other members of my household have developed a tendency to steal it, use it and become utterly anti-social. I guess the only way to solve that problem is to buy them their own copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 Aug 2008
Quite possibly the best "how-to-draw" book ever written! Got me restarted on art after an absence of many years. And Quentin Blake is just a genius!
Don't be fooled into thinking this is a kid's book as I almost was. Kids can already draw like this, it's only adults who have forgotten how.
I buy this book as a gift for all my friends and they all love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply a lot of fun 21 Mar 2006
By A Customer
I bought this book to share with my 12 year old daughter who is much better at drawing than me. I love the inspirational introduction, which informs us that there’s no such thing as a mistake, and quickly builds up confidence. Before you know it, you’re just drawing for fun. A great book to share, and see who can come up with the most imaginative sketches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb for kids of any age! 26 Feb 2009
By Alison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I'm 34 and this book is perfect for me! I can't draw (at least not yet) and this book makes it feel like it might actually be possible! The exercises I've done so far are easy and achievable and the tone that the books sets is just right. There are no mistakes, just some drawings that work really well and some that don't. I just want to be able to draw to able to please myself and to illustrate my diary/journal. Quentin Blake's own style is fun, loose and relaxed and it the main reason I chose the book. Recommended for children and adults alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD FUN AND A GREAT CONFIDENCE BUILDER 5 Jan 2007
I brought this for my daughter for Christmas. She decided to take Art at GCSE level but was finding it a bit of hard work, mainly due to a lack of confidence in her own ability. However, within a few days of Christmas and a few pages of this book later, we now have sketches all over the house and she is really enthusiastic about going back to school and showing off her new talent and belief in herself! I might even have a go myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for 10 year old
This book was extremely well received. The child loves it and it appears to have stretched his imagination far more than other drawing books I've looked at.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected.
I expected a how to book. This book more or less says don't be afraid to do your own thing, doesn't actually show you how to draw anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book
I bought this for my 7 year old daughter and it is maybe a little old for her but I'm hoping that with some adult help she'll still enjoy it as its a great book.
