Coloring in Wonderland

Follow the White Rabbit into this imaginative coloring book inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, featuring intricate pen-and-ink drawings by acclaimed artist Amily Shen.  Meet the Cheshire Cat, attend the Mad Hatter's tea party, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts in this evocative tale that invites you into a strange and beautiful new world of coloring.

As you can probably guess from the title of this adult coloring book, Wonderland is inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

It is an adult coloring book that tells you a story.

The narrator (presumably the artist)is sketching on a warm day, when she notices something run by.  A rabbit in a waistcoat, of course, late for a party.

The narrator follows the rabbit and finds herself in Wonderland.

Each "Chapter" of the book has a block of text telling what is happening on the next few pages.

You see the hatters tea party, play croquet with the queen, visit the white rabbits house and more.

If you are familar with the story of Alice in Wonderland you will find this coloring book whimsical and fun.

But it is origional art.  You are not just coloring Disney-esque recreations.  So if you only know Alice through the Disney movie this is not the Wonderland you know.

There is also the bonus of this book urging you to flex your creative muscles beyond coloring pages.  Some of the pages ask you to draw on them.  To add more colorful butterfly friends, to create your own tea party cakes and more.  There is even a scavenger hunt, asking you to find things the White Rabbit lost in his rush.

The pages are cardstock but are not overly heavy.  They are also double sided so I would not recommend using markers to color in Wonderland.

I received a copy of this novel free from Blogging for Books, but all thoughts and opinions on it are my own.
