Everything you need to know to draw your favorite dinosaurs
By James Silvani

Prehistoric pencil power! Even though they lived some 65 million years ago, dinosaurs and other prehistoric reptiles continue to rule today. From movies to comics and cartoons, these ancient, giant beasts are everywhere you turn. Of course, who wants to just read about or watch these dinos when you can learn how to pencils, pens, markers, and more to drawn your very own?

Cartoonist James Dilvani combines easy to follow art exercises with the latest, greatest dino-facts to help you create fun and cool dinosaur doodles all by yourself. With lessons on old favorites like T-rex and stegosaurus as well as lesser-known (but still awesome) creatures like the massive argentinosaurus Draw-a-Saurus has everything the dinosaur fan could ever ask for outside of their very own pet dino)! 

James Silvani is an artist and illustrator and has drawn characters for Disney, Warner Bros., Dreamworks, Lucasfilm and Marvel Comics. Currently he is a comic book illustrator for titles like Disney's Mickey Mouse, DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, and the Muppets. Silvani has drawn dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts since childhood and now puts those skills to use in art workshops at libraries, schools, and comic book conventions. Silvani is a resident of Kihei, Hawaii. 

This Draw-A-Saurus book is adorable. There are easy to follow step by step instructions and color pictures of the finished dinosaurs. The best part though is that there are facts about dinosaurs so not only does this book help someone discovery their artistic skills, but it also teaches them a little science. It's the perfect gift for any little boy or girl.
