The book is attractive because it is well written and concise on the one hand and theory-oriented and adequately documented on the other. It contains approximately 240 relevant references and useful author and subject indexes. Moreover, it is carefully edited and illustrated. Admirably, and most importantly, Maureen Cox displays her research inclination in every chapter by questioning the adequacy of earlier studies, by considering alternative explanations and by refraining from easy generalisations and sweeping statements. This serves to recommend her book to developmental psychologists, educators, and those interested in cultural and developmental aspects of graphic art. - Bulletin of the International Graphonomics Society

This book is a comprehensive review of North American and European studies, covering development, intelligence levels, intercultural aspects, and emotional indicators in the drawings...This is a scholarly work that deserves attention. - Audrey Rieger in Science Books and Films
