Review: Bluey: How To Draw

Bluey fans and young and old will be thrilled with this new book.

Bluey: How To Draw offers 48 pages full of Bluey and her friends. 

Best of all, it guides readers through how to draw them all.

Simple step-by-step instructions are given with a written instruction and accompanying line drawing depicting it. 

Follow the instructions in order and in just nine steps you'll have your own version of a Bluey character.

Eah double-page spread has a coloured border and features a different character. The first is Bluey, of course, then Bingo, Dad Bandit, and Mum Chilli. There's also Socks, Snickers, Muffin, The Terriers, Coco, and others. 23 characters in all!

The ninth step for each drawing is to colour in, and the characters make comments like 'Pomeranians are a small but hardy breed' (that's Pom Pom).

It's a little surprising just how quickly and easily you can create a recognisable Bluey and her family and friends. The guidance is basic enough for young children to read and follow, or to look at the pictures, listen to an adult, and action each step.

Bluey: How To Draw will bring out the artist in everyone. It's a perfect gift for children who love being creative, or who simply love Bluey.

If you can't wait to get your copy of the book, while you're waiting you can download a step-by-step guide of how to draw Bluey from the official Bluey website. It will whet your appetite for the book and the many more characters you can draw.
