Featuring tons of made-up heroes and heroines, My Beastly Book of Hilarious Heroes is filled with over 150 doodle and scribble activities to give budding young artists hours of fun. Like the other titles in the My Beastly Book series, My Beastly Book of Hilarious Heroes aims to push kids’ latent illustrative creativity into curious new directions by presenting them with silly scenarios and open-ended instructions. Balance a mountain of cars on a strongman’s pinky finger, choose the real hero in a line-up of ordinary people, fill a grocery store shelf with food for a hero’s cart, design a hero's mask and costume, and draw a portrait of an entire family of heroes in this incredible addition to the My Beastly Book series. Kids will have fun helping these heroes save the day -- but might have even more fun putting kryptonite in their way. The wide variety of activities — from drawing and coloring to cut-outs and more — will help kids build confidence in their artistic skills and inspire their minds. Instructions are clear and concise, but still give kids plenty of reason to make use of their active imaginations. Illustrator Vincent Boudgourd’s loose, fantastical style sets up each impish scenario perfectly and encourages kids to respond to each page in a spontaneous and natural way.
VINCENT BOUDGOURD is the art director at a publicity agency. He enjoys posters and illustrations from the 1950’s through 70’s, traveling, waves, wide open spaces, and meat and potatoes. He lives in Rennes, France.
"The silly page-by-page endeavours will amuse just about any kid."
"Thick and sturdy enough to hold up well under eager (and sometimes destructive) little fingers...an endless array of super-heroes in side-splitting situations that promise hours of fun."
"...just the right anecdote for the winter blahs."
"...substantial enough, at some 160 pages, to keep your kiddos busy for a while - perfect for a road trip, cottage, or rainy weekend."
