Mane & I started using this book today. I'm looking forward to the adventure, though I've had little interest in drawing in the past. Mane loves to draws and is actually quite good at it, if you ask me. Mango, Vespera, AND Novio ALL also turn out some fantastic artwork. So, this is an adventure. We started lesson 1 today over some Good Earth tea with some classical music in the background. I know. I'm crazy. But, it's fun!
