Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A bevy of companion titles arrives just in time for back-to-school reading. With nary a note of text (save a pointed front-page explanation and one-word labels, as in his other drawing books), Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Weirdos uses hieroglyphics-like spreads to teach the art of illustrating characters such as "Evil Eva" and "Napoleon Bonyparts." Other monsters include a witch, werewolf and vampire.
Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4-This simple cartoon book features a great cast of monsters to draw, from a slimy green Dracula and a garish yellow Frankenstein, who lumbers across two pages, to a mean-looking werewolf, a red devil, and more. Napoleon Bonyparts's skeleton is detailed and could even be useful for science projects and reports (hat removed, of course). This delightful book improves on Ed Emberley's Halloween Drawing Book (Little, Brown, 1995) and will be useful at the end of October, but ghoul lovers will want it all year long.

Easiest books to use to learn to draw Aug. 27 2005
By microjoe - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ed Emberly has made some wonderful books for kids and grown-ups of any age that have no drawing skills, but want to learn a simple way. His books are the easiest books to get you started if you have no previous drawing skills. He starts with a step by step illustrated lesson to draw one simple item. First a simple straight line here, then insert a circle then, then another line, step by step along the way and before you know it you have a completed drawing that you can be really proud of. I teach Cub Socuts and this artist makes the perfect book for teaching a class when you are a volunteer yourself that is not an art pro.

In this one, he teaches us to make monsters of all sorts like a witch, wolfman, Frankenstein, vampire, Also see his book, "Make a World", and "The Big Green Drawing Book". If you want more Halloween related drawings including cats, jack o'lanterns, and a full haunted house, try Ed Emberley's "Big Orange Drawing Book".

I taught myself to draw with Ed Emberley! Oct. 28 2007
By Michelle A. Cope - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ed Emberley is amazing. This book is great for Halloween or those times when you want to draw a monster or two. I taught myself how to use Illustrator and Ed's books are a great resource because of the way he simplifies each drawing. Don't fear, this book can be used just as well with pencils, crayons or markers.

Ed Emberley inspires my daughter in all her drawings and doodles Feb. 3 2009
By TechnoBill - Published on
Format: Paperback
My daughter brought home two of Ed Emberley's drawing books from the school library.

She immediately began to draw little cartoons and towns and people using the books as guides to her work.

When she showed me her work I was amazed and quite tickled to see how well she had done.

She was totally into these books for the time period that she had them. When I looked on Amazon to see if they were something stocked (the books from the libary were quite old and well worn) I was pleasantly suprised to see that they are still sold and in paperback form no less.

For the price that Amazon had them at, the 4 for 3 promotion that was applied, and the sheer joy of my 10 year old daughter, I had to order four of them.

As far as drawing books go, she has never been so pleased.

They are well worth the investment as your child will be provided with hours of entertainment if drawing is one of their favorite activities.

Highly recommended!

My Kids Love It! July 14 2010
By Steph - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ed Emberly books are a great way to help kids break down the drawing process. At first I was concerned following the steps took away some of the creativity of drawing, but that has not proven to be the case. My five year old son absolutely loves it. He went from refusing to draw because he couldn't get the pictures the way he wanted them to sitting down daily with his Ed Emberly books. He gets a huge sense of accomplishment from being able to draw the characters. This book is a bit more advanced than the "Animals" version, so you might want to consider starting with an easier book, but the kids love the zany creatures you can draw in this one. My son thanked Ed Emberly for helping him learn to draw before he went to sleep the other night.
