I had some issues with the very first book in the series (“Anne of Green Gables”.) I felt that it had too many story pages as opposed to coloring pages but each book since then has had a much better mix. This book has the best mix by far.
I also like the way the artist has included parts of the story into the coloring pages rather than taking up a page by itself. While I prefer the design pages, the story pages have very elaborate designs to color as well.
In “The Snow Queen”, the mix is 17 story pages and 53 design pages for a total of 70 actual storybook pages. There are also four pages of thumbnails of the images and five other pages (preface, forward, and title pages and a page following the end of the story and thumbnails) which have designs that you can color.
The designs are in the same beautiful and elegant style that I have come to expect from this artist. The lines are flowing and the designs are detailed. They are not overly intricate or difficult to color.
The story portion of the coloring book gives a brief synopsis of the story but it would be best to have a story book to read along with as you color the pictures.
This is what I found as I colored in this book and tested my coloring medium on the paper. I will list, in the comments section below, the coloring medium I used for testing and which I use for most of my coloring projects.
70 pages of Designs and Story Book Illustrations plus extra pages that can be colored as well
Printed on both sides of page
Pages are heavyweight, slightly smooth and non-perforated
Some Designs merge into the binding
Some Designs spread across two pages
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page. If you use this medium, you will ruin the design on the back of the page.
Water-based markers, gel pens and India ink pens do not bleed through. Gel pens do require additional drying time.
Colored pencils did well with this paper. I found that for the most part both oil and wax based pencils worked well for good pigment and layering the same or multiple colors. My one issue was that neither were great for blending using a pencil style blending stick. The pigment smeared a bit but not as evenly as I would have hoped. Wax-based pencils did better at blending than did oil-based colors but both were acceptable for my use.
