Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "TOON Books condenses the vast experience, talent, and child-friendly energy on display in its graphic novels into this comic-creation intensive. Comprehensive in its comics theory but pitched to its readership of young would-be cartoonists, this slim volume offers a new lesson on almost every page. This design allows kids to follow it step-by-step and evolve their skills (with lots of practice), or to jump around to the examples that most pique their interest. Exercises always put a premium on imaginative fun, by, for example, using the natural formation of letters and numbers to create interesting characters. While the book is conceptually ambitious, it doesn't skimp on the details and small devices for younger characters, draw the eyes lower on the face; distinguish characters with interesting props highlighting that it's the small things that bring individual style forward and make a comic tight and clear. There are quotes and tips from such comics luminaries as Roz Chast and Neil Gaiman, but Brunetti, with his crystalline design sense (think Chris Ware for kids), was the perfect choice to spearhead this project. Lest grown-ups feel left out, there's a short section for adults and educators about integrating comics into a child's literacy development. Includes an excellent list of resources for kids and adults, and, incidentally, copious references to TOON's own catalog of books and creators.--Jesse Karp Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "An idiosyncratic guide to drawing comics packs a lot of information into relatively few pages, covering doodles and basic shapes, characters and emotions, settings and perspective, lettering and layout, and how to develop a story. It also introduces trade lingo (panel, spread, and emanata included), offering readers a working vocabulary about what it is, exactly, that comics do. Filled with ideas and instructions, the antic pages are studded with asides and suggestions from graphic novel celebrities such as Liniers, Chris Ware, Roz Chast, and Neil Gaiman. Though the content will likely prove most useful for readers above the lower end of the stated age range, the mix of words and images effectively moves from entry-level techniques to difficult concepts as the book progresses. And the last eight pages offer a useful guide for adults looking to read comic books with children, an inclusion that sneakily puts adults building visual literacy on the same page as younger readers.
