Doodle Book, Paperback Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Packed with activities including colouring, cutting and pasting, this book should engage creative kids both big and small.

Taro Gomi provides readers with the bare bones of a sketch or outline, which they are then encouraged to expand upon by means of an instruction at the top of the page.

For example, the outline of a fish tank is accompanied by the suggestion to "draw a fish"; disembodied heads, hands and feet require bodies and clothes; empty speech bubbles beg to be filled in; masks and boxes can be coloured in and cut out.

Review by

This is a great book - it's basically a colouring-in and drawing book, each page has some sort of instruction, and maybe often a basic line drawing eg "Draw lots of zigzags" with a huge brush stroke zigzag going across a double page spread.Lots and lots of fun.
