This unusual activity book invites children to join the Artful Sketcher on an exclusive tour of one of the most creative factories ever built: the Little Factory of Illustration. The factory is full of eccentric artists who just love making pictures, plus some oddball animals and astonishing machines.

From the get-go, young artists can doodle; explore collage, patternmaking, and sculpture; learn about composition; or simply draw alongside the Little Factory’s resident team of artists. And if that’s not enough, there’s a pocket in the back of the book filled with weird and wonderful games, including the pieces to make a palindrome mobile. Children will be delighted to find that at the end of their factory tour they are given their very own office and their first solo exhibition!

Exploring art techniques, geometry, and game-playing simultaneously, this clever, funny book is perfect for budding artists.
