Book Description

10 Nov 2003
Packed with activities including colouring, cutting and pasting, this book should engage creative kids both big and small. Taro Gomi provides readers with the bare bones of a sketch or outline, which they are then encouraged to expand upon by means of an instruction at the top of the page. For example, the outline of a fish tank is accompanied by the suggestion to "draw a fish"; disembodied heads, hands and feet require bodies and clothes; empty speech bubbles beg to be filled in; masks and boxes can be coloured in and cut out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids!! 30 Aug 2004
By Candi Says VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I got this book after reading a review for it in the trendy i-D magazine. What a treat! My other half didn't know what was funniest - the book or my excitement at it! It is filled with things to do - speech bubbles to fill in, body parts to draw, shapes to colour, never a dull moment and such a big book as well. Although I am in my 30s, I was completely enchanted by it, as it isn't done in a particularly childish way. Now I'm just waiting for my jumbo pack of Crayola crayons bought on Ebay to arrive so I can get started!! Its very therapeutic and creative after a hard days graft. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! Get a book and have some serious fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for long plane journeys... 15 Feb 2004
Format:Paperback
A fantastic book for 5-8 year olds (and dads too!) - encouraging the imagination with little suggestions, but not overpowering or stiffling creativity...hours and hours of fun

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain ! 1 Jan 2005
Format:Paperback
If you have a child who loves colouring / drawing this book is a must. It's also helped reduce the number of stray, part finished masterpieces which tend to litter the house following the last creative session!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 7 Dec 2006
By kmc
Format:Paperback
I just bought this for my 6 year old for Xmas, and it is wonderful. I've just ordered another one for my 4 year old, who will also be able to use it, especially the first half. Each page has a simple drawing on it, which the child completes (for example, there is a pencil drawing of a tree and the instrucion 'Draw some leaves'. The drawings and instructions then get progressively harder. My kids will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 1 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
I bought this for my 6 year old son who loves colouring in. The reason I bought it was because i was fed up with him constantly asking "what can i draw?" Since having this book he hasnt asked me once and I am amazed at how detailed his pictures are now and how much thought and effort he puts in.

Much, much more fun than your bog standard colouring book! I even sneak a quick go when he goes to bed

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for those who already love drawing! 19 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Best book I've come across for stimulating creativity in my six year old. He's never before been so interested in making pictures and it's a delight to see. I am gong to buy this for all the children I know, as it's so cheap and brings hours of pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for future artists 27 Mar 2009
By Patric
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My five year old granddaughter loved it. She's still ploughing through it. I hoped it would not be the usual dot to dot children's colouring book and it certainly is not. Gives great scope for children to use their own imagination and input.
