Doodle Games Activity Book

Joe Rhatigan, illus. by Anthony Owsley. MoonDance, $7.95 paper (144p) ISBN 978-1-63322-112-3
The power of the pencil is on full display as Rhatigan offers dozens of games to tackle through doodling and drawing. Many of the activities are framed as challenges, such as “Weird Beard,” in which players compete to see who can give “awesome facial hair” to a pair of smiling gents, or the “Five-Dot Challenge,” which asks children to draw posed figures using the dots as guidelines for their limbs and heads. There’s plenty to engage both left- and right-brained kids, and the ideas and games can easily be transplanted to other blank notebooks and sheets of paper once this book has been filled up. Ages 8–12. (Sept.)
