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.

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.
