Kids Draw Anime by Chris Hart

Interst in anime and manga - the arts of Japanese animation and comics - is exploding in the US children's market. Pokemon, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon are just a few of the anime phenomena delighting kids ages 4-12. Kids Draw Anime , the 8th book in the popular Kids Draw series, is the first book specifically designed to teach kids 6-12 how to draw the popular anime style themselves. Focusing on shojo , and shonen -style anime, the book teaches the familiar big eye look, in which characters are drawn cute and young as opposed to the angular, dramatic characters of adult-oriented styles. Young artists should find a complete introduction to anime style taught with engaging text, and full-colour art. Dozens of fun, hands on lessons demonstrate how to draw heads, eyes, expressions, hairstyles, the basic body, hands and shoes, good guys and bad guys, goofy characters, fantasy characters, robots, and much more. As in all Kids Draw books, each dazzling spread is easy to follow, fun to look at, and guaranteed to charm a new generation of artists!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
