This is a Zen sort of art book. It teaches advanced art techniques while hardly talking about drawing at all. . . Hysterical--and useful. -- Kirkus Reviews Focuses on promoting creativity through zany scenarios and humorous characters . . . Children will appreciate the humor. - School Library Journal
