DESCRIPTION: A 96-page spiral bound write-in book that helps children learn to draw and write their own comic strips. Size is 240mm x 188mm. Suitable for children aged 8 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Write and Draw your own Comics from Usborne Books is a fantastic book for young creative writers to learn how to create their very own comic strips.

The book is aimed at older children, and is laid out in a systematic and well thought-out way to guide your child through the process of creating comics from start to finish, using plenty of activities to allow them to get their thoughts and ideas onto paper. The book has a hardback cover and good quality pages, and a handy concealed spiral binding enables it to lie flat on the counter top once your child has chosen their page to work on.

The book is divided into lots of different sections, all listed in a useful contents page at the front. The first lots of sections concentrate on all the different elements involved, such as 'Making up characters', 'Action drawings', 'Speech bubbles', 'Sound effects', Rough planning' etc.

The second lot of sections provide lots of guided themed pages for your child to have a go at creating comic strips of their very own, such as 'Superheroes vs robots', 'Pirates and treasure', 'How to be a cat', and 'Fantasy quest' to name a few, not forgetting a guide to designing the all important front cover!

These sections are packed full of helpful tips to encourage them to plan the contents and structure of their comics, and think about different story settings, characters, perspectives and dialogue. There is also plenty of blank space for your child to write and draw, with wonderful use of coloured backgrounds and illustrations to appeal to young minds and help set the scene.

There is even a load of fun stickers (including lots of blank speech bubbles) at the back of the book for your child to incorporate into their comic creations!

This is another really superb educational book from usborne which not only gives children a fascinating insight into the world of comics, but also encourages them to get creative themselves using a great range of fun guided themes to really engage their imagination...just brilliant!

BAD POINTS: Absolutely none that we can find!
