This is really a fun read....escept....the effort to actually READ it is horrible unless you have the right light that does not reflect off the page!!! Light white print against a black background is NOT comfortable reading and THAT was really a gigantic negative in my mind. Baker's progression in his artistic ability is really delightful but I do wish it had been EASIER on the reader!!! I do like his suggestions at the end...to just go ahead and DRAW...why not???? ( )
