Got this for my artistic nephew. He's in love with it. He's a bit too young to know what to do with some parts, but he'll grow into it.

There seems to be several of this kind of book out there that cater to girls. This was a good alternative for boys.

Much more than a basic sketchbook!! Suggestions for decorating the pages with collages, photos, clipart, rubber stamping, and a wide variety of mediums to make the book your own. Thicker pages allow for attaching other paper and designs right to the book. Geared for boys to let their imagination run wild. Decorate an ipod drawing, learn urban alphabets, doodle a sci fi world, draw creatures, design with stickers and more. Original in the journaling prompts and designs. Boys are going to love this small book they can throw in their back pack. Great boredom buster. Great gift giving idea for any boy ages 8 and up. I received a copy of this book from Gibbs-Smith in an exchange for an honest review. flag
