"Andrew was a Doodle Boy." So begins Barney Salzberg's Andrew Drew and Drew, a delightful picture book tribute to drawing and creativity. By showing how an ordinary boy can go on countless adventures with a simple pencil, the book serves as gentle encouragement to beginner artists.

The book unfolds in a series of pull-out pages and flaps. Children can follow Andrew as he works on lines, which become shapes, which become dinosaurs, rabbits, monsters, or stars. The background of each page is a glossy white that serves as a perfect stage for the simple lines that spread across it.

"Andrew thought that making a drawing was like making magic," and he draws not only things he sees, but things he imagines, too. Salzberg's book is a lovely way to encourage a young one's creativity and passion.
