This inspiring introduction to animation encourages readers to make their own films. A brief history of moving pictures precedes discussion of various types of animation—including pencil drawing, found objects, Claymation, and cutouts. After choosing a style, animators write a story and create a storyboard before beginning filming. With the essentials covered, the book then explains enhancements such as 3D computer animation and sound effects. Full-color photographs, short bursts of text, and sidebars about famous animators sustain interest. The title ends with tips on how kids can improve their animation techniques. A glossary, resources for further information, and an index are included.

With the allure of trendy topics and a captivating design, these titles are sure to be popular with budding artists and media mavens. Written in a friendly tone, the conversational texts read like one friend is showing another the ropes (e.g., “Not only is this hobby fun, but creating your own podcast could lead to a successful career in radio.”). The energetic layouts include bright graphics, small blocks of text, lots of color photos, and sidebars with plenty of tips and practical advice and profiles of accomplished professionals. The titles provide as much of a step-by-step outline to creative endeavors as possible in 32 pages. Readers looking for more information will make use of the impressive “Further Information” print and Web resources. These solid introductions manage to leave plenty of room for individual creativity. The only pieces missing are mentions of Internet safety or privacy when sharing or publishing works online.
