Comments for the Monsters!: Draw Your Own Mutants, Freaks & Creeps
Sean loves to draw monsters. For his birthday his grandmother gave him a copy of Monsters! Draw Your Own Mutants, Creeps and Freaks by Jay Stephens. It teaches to draw monsters by focusing on body types, parts and textures. It has a number of tutorials to help teach the basics of drawing.
By focusing on a single detail, the book teaches how different eyes, different mouths, different ears and so forth can drastically change the appearance of a monster (or any other creature).
The book is one of series of drawing books. The others include Robots! and Heroes! For more info, see Monsterama.

The first "How to draw" book read for any of the 3 Canadian Book Challenges. Cool.
Did Sean like it?

Sean LOVES the book. He's read it cover to cover about a dozen times.
