Gr 3-6-Barr encourages creativity; his instructions are flexible, not hard-edged. Each page takes readers through several steps that will make them successful at drawing cartoons. In the beginning pages of the first book, the drawings are of faces only; later pages show how to add expressions. People begins by showing how to draw faces, then adds bodies, and explains how to show movement. All of the steps are illustrated with black line drawings; the finished cartoons are in full color. The instructions are more basic than those in Lee J. Ames's "Draw 50" titles (Doubleday); most libraries will want both series.-Julie E.
