Also be sure to check out Johanna Basford's newest stunning coloring book Enchanted Forest!
Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in an inky black-and-white wonderland.
This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations—all waiting to be brought to life through coloring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. And there are also bits of the garden that still need to be completed by you.
Appealing to all ages, the intricately-realized world of the Secret Garden is both beautiful and inspirational.
Lots of neat little doodles as well as open spaces to add my own, gives me an opportunity to be creative and feel creative. Great for my grandkids, but I enjoy it too.
The book that started it all!!!
This is the book that started the whole adult colouring phenomenon. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy colouring, being mostly into video games and the like, but this has been very helpful in managing stress and relaxing in my down time. Very beautiful book with lovely drawings. My wife is jealous and wants to buy another for herself!
I purchased a few of these as gifts and everyone loved them. They were at a great price from Booktopia and I couldn't have asked for a better quality product.
A really good book for young people
I loved the way there were different things to do throughout the book. As a former teacher this has my tick of approval. If the child didn't enjoy what was on one page the next was different. I bought 2 for my grandchildren.

One of the best for colouring enthusiasts
This is one of the best adult colouring books I have seen Beautiful artwork is almost too lovely to start. I love it for a gift and wouldl like one for me. Also , I would say IF it was possible, to have it available in an A 5 size, purely to make it easier to pop it in a handbag to take it when travelling. I note that Booktopia have another book by the same Author... More fun...
