Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2 Up Ames' introductions ``to the reader'' and ``to the parent or teacher'' are nearly word for word out of his other books. The format is the same: six to nine line drawings per page, from first step to finished product. He encourages readers to take plenty of time and suggests very lightly sketching out the step-by-step drawings so that mistakes may be rectified. This one, with its popular subject of imaginative monsters and other nightmare inhabitants, will be a sure-fire circulator. Some readers may not, however, notice the play on words of some of the beasties names: i.e., ``Imp Earie Al,'' ``Melon Collie,'' ``The Tooth Furry,'' ``Satyr Ikkle,'' etc. A worthwhile purchase for all collection that can't keep ``drawing books'' on the shelf. Patricia Homer, Lowville Academy, N.Y.

Read an Excerpt

"Leslie can draw the best beastie I ever saw!" Such peer acclaim and encouragement generate incentive. Contemporary methods of art instruction (freedom of expression, experimentation, self-evaluation of competence and growth) provide a vigorous, fresh-air approach for which we must all be grateful.
