Adventures in Cartooning – book review

Adventures in Cartooning: How to Turn Your Doodles into Comics
by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost
Graphic Novel
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)

This is my new favorite DIY guide to writing comics. A snarky Magic Cartooning Elf encourages a not-so-artistic princess to follow her dreams and make a comic book of her own, along the way offering helpful suggestions and tips about design and storytelling. The result is simultaneously instructive and hilarious (I particularly enjoyed the exploits of Edward the horse). Kids who want to craft their own comics will be well-served by this book which entertains while it sneakily imparts comics creation tips.
