    While I am a little too young to remember Jon Gnagy, I can appreciate good art and good value! The kit includes a black-and-white 64-page instructional book, fifteen 12" x 18" sheets of drawing paper, a 12" x 18" drawing board, 3 sketching pencils, a carbon pencil, a kneaded eraser, a tortillion (or "stomp"), a piece of gray chalk, two pieces of black chalk, and a sandpaper pad. Armed with these materials, it's time to investigate the book, a short course in learning how to draw. The first pages focus on the basics: using your pencil, stomp, and chalk to make different tones. Then you practice drawing lines, shapes, and forms (3-D shapes). A "crash course" on composition and perspective follow. Then you jump into the lessons, which guide you in six or less steps to making a picture, complete with shading and texture. The steps are somewhat lengthy, with the goal being a very realistic, three-dimensional representation. Thankfully, the example drawing progresses with you. The lesson subjects increase in complexity, incorporating more complex shapes and a range of subject matter, including pumpkins, a steamboat, snow-covered landscape, a Great Dane, and a Mexican boy. The end of the book provides guidance on drawing the human figure in action. While I have some issues with the layout and readability of the book (all instructions are in three languages, which makes every page seem crowded), this is the only kit I have seen that includes all of your supplies, gets you up and running quickly, and emphasizes shading to produce a "finished" look. – Jess

    Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess
