Lots of great eye candy that lures children in, but when my 6th
Lots of great eye candy that lures children in, but when my 6th through 8th grade art students tried using it, they became frustrated and complained that there were no actual tutorials, no real guiding or teaching. The overall book LOOKS good on first glance, plenty of clever little gimmicky illustrations, cute asides, nice color and some impressive celebrity renditions, but had the effect of discouraging students once they got into trying to apply it in actual practice as a "how-to" book. The text also looks promising when casually perused initially, but each point is followed by a lot of fluff and padding and often contradicts the very statement being made. This book is a deal-killer for many kids and probably for many adult artists who find it MADdening rather than enlightening. We just started using one other recent book, by Jim Van Der Keyl, that so far has been working better for teaching caricature art basics based on our experience. Will review that when we've tested it a bit more.
