Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up-Manga is one of the fastest growing mediums in the United States. Young people are nuts about it. This instructional drawing book is on a beginner's level and does not go into great depth on how to develop characters visually, but it does give good fundamental tips. It starts with the eyes as they are the telltale characteristic of the genre. Hart provides five to six steps for drawing boys, girls, robots, heroes, villains, and other characters and also shows how to draw different poses and action moves. The black-and-white illustrations are clear and easy to follow, but one will need to practice to get the right look. Completed drawings are in full color. The author's comments are entertaining and the images are sure to grab attention. Children will have a great time using this book to spark their own creative imaginations.-Joel Bangilan, Houston Public Library, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
