The Draw Any Animal Book: Over 150 Simple Step-by-Step Drawing Sequences for Every Kind of Creature

The Draw Any Animal Book is a book full of step by step tutorials for line drawing a number of animals. Originally published in a weekly children's newspaper in the 1920s-30s, this collection, released 15th Oct 2019 by Quarto on their Quarry imprint, is 176 pages and available in paperback format.

The format of these tutorials will be familiar to most readers. They start with simple shapes or geometric line drawings, add simple shapes and refine the outline to wind up with a recognizable finished drawing. Some of the drawings were whimsical, some were very stylized.Each tutorial page has a 'now you have a go' blank facing page for practice.

Great selection for a gift for a young artist, perhaps with some added sketch pads and pencils. This would also make a superlative classroom or library book.I would also recommend this book to babysitters, grandparents, parents, and basically anyone who spends a fair bit of time with small kids in order to up their 'draw with me' game.

Four stars. Fun collection.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
