I bought this book because Quentin Blake's name is on it.
This is actually a drawing book for kids adorned with the childlike drawings of Blake. It's a fun book with lots of ideas on what to draw and semi-filled pages with instructions and space for you to draw in. The instructions are simple and you can use this to teach kids to draw. And if the kids know how to read, they can go through the book on their own.
Blake's drawings are loose, casual and nothing too intimidating for anyone to copy. The text is written in encouraging tone and easy to follow. Overall, the book teaches you how to draw in a more cartoon-like manner. If you want something more serious, like representational drawing, I suggest getting Keys to Drawing instead.
Also provided along with this book are two pencils and an ink pen to let you start immediately. For the price of the book, it's quite a bargain.
This is a really fun drawing book.
