Book Review - Learn to Draw Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Learn to Draw Star Wars: The Force Awakens




About the Book
Learn to Draw Star Wars: The Force Awakens brings modern Star Wars iconography to life in stunning graphite pencil, transforming memorable characters including Rey, Poe Dameron, BB-8, and Kylo Ren (along with Leia, Han Solo, and R2-D2) into detailed, realistic portraits. Lucasfilm collaborator and professional artist Russell Walks guides artists step by step and provides insightful notes, drawing tips, and memorable moments for each character from the film. This book allows readers to develop and strengthen their drawing skills, while experiencing this legendary series in a whole new light.


My Take on the Book
This is a great book that allows you to really draw some amazing Star Wars characters. This is definitely a book that is not for the beginning artist as while there are steps it does go quite fast, with a lot of shading and more. That being said, there are some very cool images that you can make but it does take time and patience. This is a great book for any Star Wars fan!

Book Review - If You Give a Man a Cookie: A Parody

If You Give a Man a Cookie: A Parody



About the Book
#1 New York Times bestselling author Laura Numeroff, author of the hugely popular children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, offers this hilarious parody of her own book for the man in your life.

If you give a man a cookie...he's going to want milk to go with it...God forbid he should get it himself.

If You Give a Man a Cookie is a woman’s commentary about her helpless man and the chain of events that leads him on a journey from the bed to the bathroom to the couch and back to bed at nightfall.


My Take on the Book
My daughters grew up on the If you Give a Mouse a Cookie and other books by Laura Joffe Numeroff. This book was such a funny parody on the book and while it does have some stereotypes within the book, it is still a fun book that all will enjoy. The book follows a similar path as many of her other books have in the past. You can tell that the illustrator within this book is different than in past books, but Brian Ajhar's work is still great! The book is geared for women to read as it does portray men as helpless and a bit hapless too, but in reading this as a man, I know it is all in fun.

This was a great story. My youngest read this and found that even though she did not read the first book she loved it and now she wants to read the second as well.

Book Review - Tyrannosaurus Ralph





About the Book
Dinosaurs plus bullies plus aliens plus hijinks equal a wacky new graphic novel kids will love!

Ralph is just trying to get home from school without getting picked on by the local bully.

He's not trying to run smack into that bully. He's also not trying to wake up hours later in the body of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And he's DEFINITELY not trying to do battle in an alien arena in order to save Earth from the evil Cloberus Crunch.

Unfortunately for Ralph, this is exactly what happens.

Armed only with a new body (with very tiny arms) and his wits, Ralph is expected to not only defend himself and his planet in hand-to-hand combat with ferocious aliens, he must also navigate a new world filled with all sorts of creatures Ralph has never imagined, in which it can be difficult to tell friend from foe.

This zany, hilarious story will appeal to anyone who loves dinosaurs, aliens, and adventure.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that was filled with a ton of humor, action and great artwork throughout the book. The characters in this book were memorable and even though the story is a bit different, it was a fun romp through a world unlike our own. As mentioned, the artwork was stunning and really jumped off the page. I loved reading this along with my daughters!
