WHAT THE KIDS SAY
WHAT ADULTS THINK
I like this book because it provided my son, 8, interest into the theme of Star Wars. It also was a great way to incorporate his reading as he was learning to design his pictures. He brought this book to school and it was an instant hit that all his friends took part in learning how to draw different star war images. Thank goodness it is well binded because it took some beating over the use of the book.
Great quiet activity book to help tie into the excitement of the new movie coming out this fall. The topic is very appealing to our boys (M7 & M9), and the instructions/guides are excellent; both boys were able to follow it. Fun tracing activities and the kids were very excited and satisfied with the end results. It's not as large as some art books which makes it more portable. This was much appreciated by my testers. Easy portability makes it a great choice to slip into a tote for restaurants and visiting boring adult relatives. As both our boys love art, we thought they'd gravitate to this toy more than they did though, but interest is wanning faster than I'd expect.
This fall, Lucasfilm and Disney launch their brand-new animated series Star Wars Rebels. Set five years before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, the show focuses on a small band of rebels who engage in missions of sabotage and resistance against Imperial occupation (cue evil music here). This means great new stories with exciting new characters in brave new worlds. And what better way to get to know these new heroes and villains than by learning to draw them? That''s where we come in.
Draw Star Wars Rebels is a complete how-to guide packed with expert tips and easy step-by-step instructions that let kids bring these exciting new Star Wars characters to life - from the irrepressible spirit of Ezra, the 14-year-old charismatic con artist who learns to fight for the greater good, to the Inquisitor, the menacing spy who tracks down Jedi survivors. Star Wars fans will get to know them from the inside out (literally) as they start with stick figures, add shapes, then insert details big and small. And there''s plenty of room to draw right inside the book.
It''s the first-ever drawing book for this much-anticipated new series, so getting to know these great characters and being able to draw them is just around the corner . . . not so far, far away.
