Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6 - While the authors give some background about the art forms featured in these volumes, the focus is really on what it takes to have a career in any of these fields. The format will appeal to reluctant readers; information is presented in simple paragraphs with helpful headings, along with plenty of interesting color illustrations. Sidebars about real-life practitioners and "Try it yourself" activities are included. Illusion Artseems to be the least practical of the four titles, yet perhaps the most interesting for general browsing or use by kids who love to draw and want to create something to impress their friends. Designdoes a nice job of showing how computer-aided design works in places such as the automobile and aviation industries. And what kid doesn't dream of creating the coolest graphic novel ever, or of becoming an animator on the next Pixar project? These books would be useful in most career sections.-Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ
