My two boys aged 9 and 7 both received the doodle book as a Christmas present. We take it with us when the boys need to sit still for a while (in a restaurant). While in one restaurant I had four boys around the table all doodling in one book. I have bought this book for 3 friends children as a present - all have enjoyed the book as it keeps them occupied.
We absolutely love these books! I took this to Egypt for my 7 year old son. It keept him in the shade and occupied for hours. It was filled in cover to cover by the end of the holiday. It keeps interest because it asks you to add your own ideas to the picture that has been started. "What has the robber got in his sack", "Complete the alien city","Who else has come to the monster party?", "What is making the king laugh?". It is a big book with good quality paper, if you haven't seen any of this series you won't be dissapointed. I have been known to fill in a couple of pages myself!
