In his book, "Draw-A-Saurus", James Silvani does something amazing - he teaches you how to draw dinosaurs. Yes, you! By breaking down the drawing into simple, easy to follow steps, with tons of images to help you along, Silvani gives you an awesome tutorial in designing your very own dino.

This book not only offers tips and hints for drawing your favorite dinosaurs, it also has lots of real information about a variety of dinosaurs. For example, did you know that Oviraptors were named so because their skull shape made them appear to be egg thieves and eaters? I loved that Silvani took the time and effort to make this not only a book about drawing, but a book about understanding the animals that you are drawing.

The tutorials cover a variety of different dinosaur species, and Silvani goes step by step through the drawing of the dinosaur, with plenty of pictures of how the image should look at each step. I got this book for my daughter who loves to draw, and I think it's the perfect book for beginners or more advanced artists. I also think it is perfect for any age. Silvani mixes in humor with his lessons, but it's appropriate for anyone.

Overall I would give this book a 5/5. The actual drawing tutorial is simple and easy to follow for any age or skill level. With over 100 pages of information, lessons, and humor, Silvani really offers a great guide to drawing these magnificent beasts!
