The essence of childhood is rooted in fantasy. Author Bob Berry helps children turn that fantasy into reality with his book Learn to Draw Pirates, Vikings, & Ancient Civilizations. This book contains step-by-step instructions for drawing ancient characters, civilizations, and mystical creatures. Through fun facts and illustrations, Bob opens the door to the imagination, providing the reader with a set of keys that unlock a world filled with legend and lore. This passion for drawing the fantastic can be traced back to Bob's own childhood, where he spent much of his time drawing characters from popular cartoons and comic books.
