The Lovereading4Kids comment
Take a shape and transform it into something new...Top names, including Jo Brand, Quentin Blake, Jacqueline Wilson, Phillip Pullman, Imelda Staunton, Anthony Horowitz, Sir Peter Blake, Linford Christie and Andrew Motion, have played Anthony Browne's Shape Game and left a new shape behind for children to turn into whatever they want. This simple drawing game is the perfect way to encourage children to use their imaginations.
A message from Anthony Browne, author, illustrator and Children's Laureate 2009-2011
The rules of the The Shape Game are very simple: the first player quickly draws any abstract shape at random, the second looks at it and then transforms it into something recognisable. It could be anything - a face, a dinosaur or a fried egg. It could be a doodle or a work of fine art. Like the players in this book, you can use any materials, from a basi felt-tip pen to paints, crayons or collage. Turn the paper upside down or sideways, take as much or as little time as you want - simply let your imagination run wild and fun! All the proceeds from this book will be donated to Rainbow Trust Children's Charity, which provides vital support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
