Amily Shen's "WONDERLAND" A coloring book

I have never owned an adult coloring book but I have wanted to give it a try. I had previously bought coloring pencils but had never gotten around to actually buying the books. I had seen a few in store but nothing had really grabbed my attention. Then, I came across this coloring book. It caught my attention immediately so I thought, "Why not?"

I grew up reading "Alice in Wonderland" and loved the book. I also watched every movie that came out. I am not saying I am an expert but I know a little about Alice and the White Rabbit. I could also read the book over and over again.

This book is inspired by Alice's Adventures and is told in the first person narrative. I love how it covers the story as well as lets you color the pages. It also gives you options to draw. For example, there is a page with 2 butterflies and it say's "Give them some more beautiful butterfly friends." So you draw your own. On another page in the book you are asked to write the names of your friends whom you are inviting to the party. So you feel as if you are interacting with the book. It is like you are helping to create the book and I find that interesting and fun. Also included within the pages are puzzles that you complete by finding the answers throughout the book.

This coloring book may not be for everyone. But If you grew up enjoying the classics, love whimsical books and love to read then you will enjoy this coloring book. My neighbor commented that she thought it would be for little girls. Yes, this would make an excellent gift for your child that loves to color and if they have not read "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", then it would be a great introduction to a timeless classic.

The only problem I had with this book is that it is just gorgeous and I do not want to write in it, haha. But then again, there is a part of me that wants to make my pictures as pretty as I can. I am very happy with this coloring book. I fell in love with it as soon as I opened my package and I love the way the story unfolds within the gorgeous pages.

If you would like more information you can find it on Amazon

I received this book compliments of Blogging for Books for my honest review and all opinions are my own.
