The review that says this book only has 15 pages is wrong. There are many more pages than that. I counted 40 different full-page illustrations. And every one of them is adorable! That grouchy reviewer was probably just in a bad "manga mood" ^_^

I love this book. It's cute, and very helpful (to me anyways) I especially find the various phrases funny. Very worth it, or, as my friend would say, "Kawaii Desu~!"

It does not actually teach you how to draw the faces. But it is really cute. Fun to look at! If you want to see my favorite, look at page eighteen!
