Review:

Start with a bit of M.C. Escher, mix in some Pixar-esque animation, add a dab of Stan Lee-style comics, and you get this super-cool how-to-draw book. While kids follow the prompts and practice their art on the 70 pages of this title, they learn technical terms (isometric and stereoscopic), technique (shading and perspective), and a bit of science (binocular vision). Bonus: there's a section on creating 3D photos as well-perfect for the digital-age artist.
