Learn to Draw: Pirates shows children how to draw six piratical things, from pirate captains and peg-leg sailors to enormous pirate sailing ships. Each drawing is broken down into seven simple, easy-to-follow steps to help children create, and then colour in, their own pirate pictures. Fact boxes on each spread provide information about pirates, allowing children to learn about, as well as to draw, them. A glossary at the back of the book explains any complicated words, and a 'More Information' section gives suggestions as to how children can find out more about pirates.If children have loved learning to draw pirates, why not try learning to draw dinosaurs, dragons, fairies, mermaids, unicorns, knights, castles, baby animals in other titles in the series?
