Praise for the previous edition: 'I long to buy this book for just about every child I know.' Kate De Goldi, Radio NZ 'There are ideas to truly stretch your creative muscles, and I'd be inclined not to just leave it for the kids - I couldn't resist it!' Crissy Blair, Herald on Sunday 'A veritable Pandora's box of drawing activities for children of all ages.' Art News 'This book would instil creativity in a child at home or in a classroom ... Teachers would find this to be a fantastic resource to have sitting on their bookshelves because the activities could be used to explore a range of curriculum areas such as English, mathematics, visual art and drama.' Taranaki Daily News 'Unlike other generic art activity books, this one gives you (and your child) something worth its weight in gold: a concise visual history of Maori made art, modernist and post-modernist art of Aotearoa, New Zealand.' Leafa Wilson, Waikato Times
