Has anyone found a learn to draw Manga (anime) book?

My son is going to a birthday party this weekend and the birthday girl is very into Anime. Her mother recommended getting her a Pokemon tshirt or one of the other Anime cartoons. We may do that as well, but I think at 7, a tshirt might be kind of disappointing, so my son wanted to see if we could find her a how to draw book. Anyone ever seen any?

  • I have seen them at Borders, but the ones I have seen look like they are aimed at an older age group than 7. I'm a pretty big manga and anime fan myself - please leaf through the book before purchasing. A lot of manga and anime is not meant for children and the art represented may reflect more violence and/or adult situations than may be appropriate for a young child.

  • I've seen them often, I'm sure you could do a search on eBay or something and find one!

  • I know they have them at Hastings and I think there is one where you live. Also I have seen them at barnes and noble and boarders bookstores.
