About the Author

Ed Emberley is the Caldecott Award-winning author of the popular Drawing Book series.


Anyone can be an artist with Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Trucks and Trains, a welcome addition to his other drawing books. The opening page pictures the simple shapes and letters necessary to do the drawings. He then shows two lines of images, explaining, "The bottom row tells what to draw. The top row tells where to put it." Interior pages similarly show each step in the process of drawing a train from engine to caboose truck, trolley car and more. (Apr.)

Gr 2-5-Emberley focuses on teaching children how to draw these vehicles in a simple manner. The first page shows a group of shapes and lines, explaining, "If you can draw these things you will be able to draw all the things in this book." That's the only text that appears. The artist then leads children through a step-by-step process. He starts off with trains, moving on to pickup trucks, vans, and heavy trucks. The last page shows stick people in various poses, as well as a cat, bird, and an assortment of "smiley" faces. The simple line drawings are done in black and white, highlighted with blue, red, green, or yellow. A good purchase for libraries in which Emberley's other titles enjoy frequent circulation, or where materials on learning to draw are in demand.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
