What did I think?

If you are not new here, you already know that I have a bit of an obsession about anything created by Lexi Rees. And if you have landed here for the first time, do search for the author’s name on my blog to find more goodies!

Anyway, as a not particularly creative person, I love it when someone can point me in the right direction. Lexi Rees hands creativity on a silver platter but she also makes you do some work! True, I am not in the target audience of children between the ages of 6 and 12. That, however, hasn’t stopped me before and it is not going to stop me now.

The book invites the reader to look at the world and everything in it, truly observe it, and draw it. There are 8 sections and each of them explores a theme that will take you, for instance, around the house or outside, looking at clouds or studying the shape of noses.

The beauty of Scavanger Art is its simplicity, not to mention the cute illustrations by Molly O’Donoghue.
