    Adult/High School

    At last, an instructional art book that focuses solely on the female manga character. The bodacious babes featured in this well-designed, highly informative, and artistically inspirational book will hold appeal for both newly curious and experienced manga artists. The characters range from classic shojo-style to sexy uniformed schoolgirls, empowered career women, and pop-culture enthusiasts ("Representin' Reiko"-a hip-hop fan-or Ana, the punk rocker) as well as to vampires, beach babes, tomboys, and Goths. Multiculturally neutral, the book well represents international styles, fashions, and trends of contemporary teen girls. It includes an introduction to manga; a film, book, and artist resource list; a Japanese-terminology glossary; a list of tools and materials; and a comprehensive how-to section that covers everything from basic line drawing to digital media. This title should be a welcome addition for art instructors, teen manga clubs, and libraries that have a strong manga/anime following.-Jodi Mitchell, Berkeley Public Library, CA
