A very informative book that has opened my eyes about illustrating. I know I will always keep it as it has reassured me that you do not have to be able to draw everything anatomically correctly for example, and that flights of the imagination are an absolutely vital ingredient to the child's book.
Also it promotes the total need for sketchbook work where the illustrator over time can develop his own personal visual style....not that a defined style is essential but it allows artists to play on paper and that is where the joy of creativity and good ideas lie.
