I know quite some people really hate Christopher Hart/ his books. Please, keep an open mind and judge a book by its contents, not by the person who wrote it. My own opinion will be listed in this review as well.

Back cover text:

The back cover text could be considered a novel on its own. Apparently, the big font 'The Ultimate Guide to Creating Chibis' is not enough. I think the backside text is about 200-300 words. That's a lot.

kittyocean: I give this book a 7 out of 10! (7)
Two weeks no review... first because of work, second because of a power-blackout...
When I typed this review it was 21:30h / 9:30 PM, there was a power-blackout and a thunderstorm passing by. There was not much light, so if you see any strange typos, it's probably because of that (plus I missed it while going through this review again).

I won't put the text down this time, because it's a lot XD. It mentions what you will learn, written in a small font, plus adding that more than 1.5 million copies of this book were sold in the United States of America.
