Here’s what people are saying about Super Simple Sumi-e!

Like Ed Emberley, the artist offers clear, step-by-step instructions . . . Charming, practical, and a good guide to using a brush to create simple illustrations.” — Kirkus Reviews

This is soooo fun (sumi-e painting, that is)!  I don’t want to go back to class.  I just want to paint all day!  6th grade student at Fernbrook Elementary School, Maple Grove, MN

Super Simple Sumi-e is a visual delight. Short phrases weave their way around the charming, step-by-step illustrations, making the painting process easy to follow. As I turned the pages, I felt I was entering a new world, a wonderful treasure hunt.
