"This series takes a novel, minimalist approach to art
instruction. Each “20 Ways” title provides 45 spreads that are
each filled with 20 small drawings on a given theme. REaders will
find no step-by-step exercises here; however, each spread offers
a variety of styles and techniques. Drawings range from the
realistic to the cartoonish to the decorative, with a few
rendered in color. The variety of drawing types is intended to
inspire readers to experiment on their own. ASpiring artists can
either copy drawings directly from the book or create their own
variations on a theme. The latest two volumes in the series focus
on nature and animals. 20 Ways To Draw a Tree presents many
sophisticated, modern drawings of plants and flowers, executed
with a surprising array of materials. Despite the title, 20 Ways
To Draw a Cat includes all sorts of animals, such as hedgehogs,
buffalo, fish, and zebras. VERDICT While Tree will appeal to
teens or adult readers, Cat is most appropriate for younger
audiences." - Library Journal
