I had previously purchased a blank comic book for my twins to draw and write in which they enjoyed, but it wasn't as enticing as I had hoped it would be. I bought a couple of these for them and it has made all of the difference. The well placed prompts has opened up a bevy of creativity. They love them and giggle at the silly stuff they come up with. I love Usborne and they are another great product!
My son loves comics and this is such a great book. We are a big fan of Usborne books and this one doesn't disappoint.
What a neat book! It has just enough prompting to get the creativity flowing without stifling the budding cartoonist. Very helpful in developing story lines, characters, dialogue and much more. I got this for my fourth grader but I could see older kids enjoying as well. He is happy that the book is spiral bound and can lay flat as he draws.
