This book is 40 pages long and small in size as well. It doesn't seem many but every single page is packed with information covering nearly everything you need to make cartoons.
Faces, caricatures, perspective , backgrounds, emotions, people, animals, scripts, special effects, frame layouts.
Really a great achievement to fit everything in.
It's perfect for a 10 year old to get a good start on quite a few topics.

I have looked at a few "how to draw cartoons" books, and this for me is the best. I am not very good at drawing yet once I received the book I immediately started drawing caricatures (with some success). There is a lot of information packed into a small number of pages, such as drawing from different sides, moving pictures, drawing stereotypes, scenery and perspective, cartoon jokes, strip cartoons and special effects, drawing animals and how cartoon film are made.
