Kawaii artist Varvara believes that food connects people from different cultures, and she asserts that it provides the opportunity to celebrate and share tasty cuisine. She also loves drawing what she eats, and she specializes in the Kawaii drawing style, which incorporates bright colors and cute, childlike characters. In this book, the author envisions a Kawaii café, and she shows readers how to draw all elements of it. She mentions the required tools, explains how they’ll be used, and gives readers practice tips and advice for coloring, shading, and highlighting. The menu options are plentiful: pastries, cakes, pies, cold treats, breakfast, brunch, lunch, snacks, drinks, and fruit. The step-by-step instructions to draw silverware, plates, bowls, a teapot, cups, and glasses are easy for all skill levels to follow. Librarians should be aware that the book contains coloring sheets.
VERDICT Readers will likely be inspired to spend countless hours drawing and composing Kawaii characters and capturing their own dining establishments and experiences.
