Have you got the doodle bug?
Any book that has ‘All proceeds go to the Rainbow Trust’ is a good book in my eyes. And for once the use of the word ‘celebrity’ is used in the right context; literary celebrities. Join the likes of Anthony Browne, Emily Gravett, Jacqueline Wilson and Alain de Botton as they use a simple shape and turn it into something amazing.
You can do the same in this fabulous book. Draw a bird, draw a plane or just draw a blobby thing. This book is great as it gives you the freedom to be spontaneous, adventurous or downright crazy and if you don’t fancy yourself as the next Oliver Jeffers or Nick Sharratt, just enjoy the wonderful drawings created by these ‘celebrities’ for a great cause.
