Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The theory behind this "Sketch It!" series is that, with a little patience and practice, everyone can learn to draw. The instructions are clear and concise: Draw lightly, draw shapes, add details, smudge. A page explaining lines, from vertical to zig-zag, follows a page illustrating simple shapes. The author encourages having fun, not worrying about perfection, and, in large letters, BE CREATIVE! Let your basset hound chew a bone or lead your miniature schnauzer with a leash. Eight familiar dogs are included, and illustrating tips specific to each breed are listed. The bulldog's powerful jaw, a standard poodle's coat that doesn't shed, and the dalmatian's smooth, short coat are part of the concise descriptions. A sturdy book, this will withstand young artists' wear and tear and hold up well in schools and libraries. A list of animal drawing books and a link to the Facthound website are included. 2004, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 10.
