Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Animals

Because I know her son, Johnny, likes to draw, I recommended this book to my buddy Jill, as much taken by the dedication, "The book I wish I had when I was a child", as the positive reviews I had read about it.

Jill brought the book, as well as Johnny and his brother Jack, to B'ham for our annual junket to the Writing Today conference, and I spent a fun half-hour going through it and following Ed's instructions.

And you know what? I found out I can draw, too, even though my usual claim is that I can't even draw a straight line. It really is a book I wish I had found as a kid.

Emberley also has a pretty neat web site too, which you might want to explore before buying one of his books.
