LoveReading View on Chris Riddell's Doodle-A-Day

Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell wants children to draw more – in fact he’d like them to do what he does and draw every day. This little book is a wonderful way to encourage us all to do just that. In it he suggests something to draw for every day of the year. Some suggestions are quite specific: draw a family member being attacked by a household appliance; illustrate the word sinister.  There are ‘how to’ pages and some very useful and interesting tips, e.g. look at your drawing upside down or in a mirror to see if you’re distorting your pictures; and lots of fun story starters too. Chris Riddell’s enthusiasm for drawing shines through, and you can’t help but feel inspired and ready to take up your pencils. Put this in a stocking or under the tree and you’ll prompt a year’s worth if not a lifetime’s happy scribbling. ~ Andrea Reece
