The system is effortless; you take basic, simple shapes that anyone can draw and then add to them until you have a mountain range, or a tree or a helicopter or an elephant or....the choice is huge.
More important than the response of a somewhat grizzled adult I gave a copy to my five year old grand-daughter, already well into colouring but not yet free drawing: she fell on the book with delight and has been devouring it, producing better and better pictures which she then lavishly colours.
Although this is not the sort of book I normally review on my website I cannot resist reviewing this one, in the hope that it may bring a new skill to those who, like me, had dismissed their artistic abilities, as well as being the means of giving a facility to children that will greatly enhance their childhood.
There's something about the way this book is put together that breaks down the mystery around being able to draw and makes is accessible and fun for everyone, no matter what they may think of their own ability.
