    As good as the hardcopy

    This book is as good to own on Nook as it is in the hardcopy version. You can't pinch in and out yet, which is why I only gave it 4 starts, but most books don't have the pinch + zoom options yet. If there is something you need to see a large view of, I recommend Nook for PC as ereaders are small and you'll want to see a larger overall view for some projects and details. Its a good way to help others learn to draw or yourself and besides, drawing is amazing and very healthy for you. I think it's a great start!

    excellent

    My 12 year old used this book when she was in a local art class....the instructor had given it to her to use during the class. She LOVED it so much, we got for her as a holiday gift. It gives step by step instructions on how to create the drawings. Highly recommend!
