5.0 out of 5 stars SPECIAL 5 Oct 2013
By true
i bought this book in one of London's museums and kept it till i felt my daughter was ready for it. we started it after her 4th birthday and did two pages a day as 'a special time', i helped her to execute her ideasand we talked about it. a year later book was complete and im keeping it with her other things to give on her 16th birthday.

i say this book is 5-99years of age, as five and half they can read simple instructions, it depends on PATIENCE. The book is definitely for home use as it is heavy.

most of pages have completely different task and CHILD WILL def need to use imagination!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant coloring book to stimulate creativity 13 May 2007
By Lisa K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As others have no doubt noted, this is not your standard coloring book. The author encourages creativity by requesting you help finish or modify pages as you see fit. My 4-year-old daughter enjoys the book quite a bit. But here are a few *nitpicky* details that some might want to consider before purchasing:

1) The book is thick/heavy, so can be unwieldy to use if you're not at a table. It's also a little tough to get the book to stay open if you're a little one.

2) I tried to remedy some of the above by tearing out pages for portability and ease of use, but many/most of the projects span two pages. So unless you're committed to taping or stapling pages together (I'm not), tearing them out doesn't really help.

3) Finally, to get the most out of this book, the recipient would ideally be able to read. It's not always obvious what you're supposed to do on the pages, and it might be frustrating for a pre-reader (and his/her caregiver!) to constantly ask, "what does THIS say?"

In sum - it's a fantastic book that would be suitable for many ages... I just offer these tidbits in case you're thinking about buying one for a preschooler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for all ages 19 April 2005
By Booksbunny - Published on Amazon.com
My parents bought me this book as a 32nd birthday present because they know I like to "doodle" in my spare time. The back cover says it's for ages 0-99, and they are correct. This book is enough to stimulate everyone's creativity... My personal favorite is the series of "this is a leopard...draw its spots", "this is a tiger... draw its stripes", "this is a panther...draw its black fur" and they're all the same drawing until you color them in! Another really good grouping is the 4 pages that each have a single vertical line. One says "draw a dragonfly balancing on this pole"...the next one says "draw a sparrow balancing on this pole"... you turn the page and "draw a crocodile balancing on this pole"... and finally, "draw an elephant balancing on this pole"... Talk about having to be creative! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars imaginative fun for all ages 16 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
What a great find this book is! Scribbles is full of many zany ideas to get kids imaginations flying. Gomi's simple artistic style is appealing to kids and adults alike. Pages have simple instructions that will guide kids without them feeling hemmed in. Gomi often has several pages in a row with the same simple illustrations but with different leaders: a quaint town drawn at the bottom of several pages has the headings: "Its a beautiful day today: draw a bright sunny sky," Today it is not so nice: Draw a dark cloudy sky," and "Today there's a thunderstorm: draw lighting and rain." Or a simple stick drawn on several pages and children being asked to draw a dragonfly sitting on one, a sparrow on another, a crocodile balancing on another and finally an elephant! Kids will love the crazy ideas. There are also masks, mazes, time- telling exercises etc. I prefer the thin line drawings to the thicker more abstract ones but there sheer abundance of ideas makes up for the few that fall short of perfect. A great score for the classroom or the craft table!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but watch out for inappropriate things. 29 Dec 2008
By Cookie Cutter - Published on Amazon.com
This is a really cool book, and I've given it to three children in my family, all who have loved it. HOWEVER, this Christmas I gave it to my nephew who found a page in which the project is to "Color the things you like." The page shows various items, some of which are a whiskey bottle and shot glass, beer cans, and a syringe and spoon. If the publisher reads this, please consider removing those items as I'm sure it is mainly children who receive this book, even though the age range says "up to 99". (Note: This is really a 5-star book, but I rated it as 1-star with the hopes that the publisher is more likely to notice poor ratings.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the idea! Hate the 'dead person' 15 Mar 2008
By J. Shelton - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this for my 3 year old who loves coloring books, as long as they have dot to dots and "design the cookie" type pages. This is perfect for her. She loves it just as much as i thought she would. What I don't like is that some of the pages are landscape style. I mean, they go across the binding of the book which makes it difficult. I tried ripping the pages out, then glueing them to a bigger piece of construction paper. That can olny be done if you have already done the pages on the back sides (unless you want to waste pages out of a 20.00 book, i don't) it would be nice if the whole book were landscape, and the worst thing about this book is the page that says to "draw a dead person." What in the world? I ripped out that page, and good thing i saw it before she did. It has a box that resembles a coffin that you are supposed to draw the 'dead body' in. I would have considered returning the book for that reason alone had she not used over 1/2 the book already,a nd been in love with it. Seriously everyday since she got it, she has done 10-15 pages.
