5.0 out of 5 stars 65 Imaginative Bicycle and Cat Design pages plus two foldout pages – printed on one side of the page 23 May 2016
By iiiireader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful and imaginative coloring book about the adventures of a bicycle and a cat. I've never seen anything quite like this before and was really impressed by the scope and detail of the book. It is like a visual story book with lots of interesting locations. There is a twist at the end that I wasn't expecting, so be sure to look for that. The illustrations are quite fun to color but are detailed and have small and intricate spots to color.

In addition to the regular coloring pages there is a two page, two sided fold-out in the middle of the book. On the inside is the colored version of the design. On the outside is the line drawing of the same design. Other than wishing that the reverse had been done (so my colored version would be on the solid page, I think it is a fold addition to the book. Because of the switch in positions, you can never see your colored designs in whole as the colored one is presented.

There is also a really fun flip-page motion story of the cat. It is in the lower left hand corner of the backside of each page. You see the motion by flipping through the pages rapidly.

I had some fun coloring my first project in this book. I decided to try the Sargent's 50 pencil set that I leave out for guests to use when they come to visit. I had never colored a full design with these pencils before and I was surprised at how well they worked (though the color went on extremely light and took several layers to show up the way I wanted them to.) I will certainly be using a wide range of medium with this book (as it is printed on one side of the page.) I will also switch colors on the cat and bicycle to suit my imagination on that day.

This is what I found in this book and by coloring and testing with various medium:

65 single page designs plus two foldout pages for a total of 69 pages of coloring designs

A Flip-page motion book of the cat (reverse side of the page in the corner

Designs printed on one side of the page

Paper is white, smooth, heavyweight, and non-perforated

Sewn Binding

Except for the fold-out pages, designs do not merge into the binding area and have a framing line around the outside of the design edge.

Book is quite thick and the spin must be creased in order to get it to lay somewhat flat for coloring

Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper in a spotty fashion. I suggest a blotter page under your working page to keep ink from spotting through to the next design.

Water-based markers, India ink pens, and gel pens do not bleed through the paper. Gel pens require extra drying time.

Colored pencils had mixed results. Wax-based, oil-based, soft lead and hard lead all put down good color and layered well though Prismacolor Premier pencils needed several layers to get good solid coverage. None of the pencils I tested did a great job of blending though my best results were with Caran D'Ache Luminance wax-based pencils. It was still great but it was better. The blending issue was not of as much importance to me in this book as the details are so small, I will not be doing blending too often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten stars plus!! 26 Jun. 2016
By Laurie S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. I would give it 10 stars if I could. First of all, it is a THICK coloring book. Illustrations are printed on one side. On the back side of each page, if you go to the back of the book and flip the pages, you will see a cat chasing a ball......clever. The illustrations are superb and so imaginative. The bicycle journey is with a cat and a bike. I have just been sitting here enjoying the illustrations page by page. As the back cover states: " Flying whales, ships sailing through corn fields, cows casually floating by, and a curious cat in every scene. Fantastical landscapes roamed by rider-less bicycles of every kind. Incredibly detailed full-page illustration. Flip through the left-hang pages to animate the cat's own adventure......".

This is the most unique coloring book that I own. It's such a cool concept. The book offers everything that most colorists like: nice paper, one sided drawings so you don't have to worry about ruining the backside of each page, a neat story, and a nice thick book! It's telling a little adventure of a cat and a bicycle, so you'll find those two items in each picture. The pictures can be super detailed, so fineliners are useful.
