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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easiest books to use to learn to draw Aug. 27 2005
By microjoe - Published on Amazon.com
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".

5.0 out of 5 stars I taught myself to draw with Ed Emberley! Oct. 28 2007
By Michelle A. Cope - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second generation April 7 2011
By Cathleen Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When my children were small I used Ed Emberley's books to draw pictures for them (not being very artistic myself!!). As they grew, they used the books to develop drawing skills...or, in reality, instead of doing homework. Now I have grandchildren and I bought the books to introduce them to creative drawing using basic shapes. It is fun to see a product span the generations. An Ed Emberley book, a box of good colored pencils and a pad of drawing paper make a fairly inexpensive gift that needs no batteries and uses something today's children seem to lack...their imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well received gift! Jan. 4 2011
By mom, wife, chick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a gift for a 7yr old little boy who loves the Ed Emberly books and LOVED this book! It's not very big but there are lots of tiny pics to copy and draw inside so I think it's deceptively full of stuff to do. The true test of an items worth is how much it's enjoyed and I know this item was well enjoyed by the little boy who received it.
