Book Review of How to Draw Kawaii Animals in Simple Steps by Yishan Li from Search Press. A Great Book for Beginners.


I have been supplied this book for the purpose of a review. I have not paid for this product, it was a competition win in order to keep but review it. Thank you to Search Press Art for giving me this opportunity to review this great book.

My First Attempts


A great book for beginners! It certainly is just that. I was impressed by the simplicity of the book but with excellent results. This book would make an ideal Birthday or Christmas gift for people of all ages, providing they liked drawing or were a fan of animals.

Here are some of my attempts at drawing, my Racoon isn’t half bad!

Awesome Pages Included in this Book
Back Cover


I am someone who really and honestly cannot draw! I mean everyone can draw in some capacity but I draw most things badly, so I jumped at the chance to use these simple steps to improve my drawing abilities.

The book is so easy to follow, with 8 simple steps to the general shape of the animals. And then you are free to add your own details. They give you inspiration with one coloured in and completely detailed animal per page, so you can attempt a similar end result.

The steps are easy, you need a pencil, and I would recommend a rubber, so that you can erase any lines that you don’t need when you complete the finer details. Some lines are there to build shape but not needed at the end.

There are all sorts of animals, fish and birds in this book, something for everyone’s tastes.

I would and have given this Book a 5 Star Review. It has something for everyone, with a variety of animals, easy steps to follow and it also gives people the freedom to add their own details, as well as getting great results.

Thank you reading this review today. You can find this book on Amazon by typing the title into their search bar.

    • It’s definitely one of the better ones I have seen and tried. I am no good at drawing so it was nice that my son recognised what I had at least attempted to draw, ha ha!
