    Reviewed by Avery, age 9 I thought this was one of the best book

    Reviewed by Avery, age 9
    I thought this was one of the best books I have reviewed to date. The book weighs a lot and every page is a colorful portrait of the ins and out of the making of The Croods. Throughout the book,  two  pages both fold out to reveal one very large piece of artwork showing concept art which gives you some inside knowledge of what goes into making full length movies. One of my favorite pages is 114. It shows the 3D models of the environment, and then the different artworks the artists used to come up with the final environment. This is cool because my mom does 3D modeling so it was a process I really understood.
    “For an artist, there’s nothing better than having the opportunity to create a world that doesn’t exist-but could-exist.”
    Each character from the movie gets their own area in the book showing more about their creation, from facial emotions to a deeper understanding of who they are. For example, for Sandy, they used videos of baby bears to help the artists bring her fearless personality to life, but if you also look at her, she looks a little like a bear with her big fluffy hair puffs that look like bear ears and round cheeks. I have found I look at this book a lot. It inspires me to use nature around me to turn into my art and I recommend it for anyone, especially people who are artists. It will inspire you just like it did me!
