A treat for all Harry fans, it has gorgeous line drawings. Author: Natasha Harding Source: The Sun
It's the coolest colouring book ever. I like the pictures of Harry and Hagrid best Source: Phoebe, age 7
Harry Potter fans might not be able to employ the charm with which the boy wizard managed to turn his primary school teacher's wig blue, but - wielding their muggle felt-tips - they will soon be able to bring colour to the world created by JK Rowling thanks to a new colouring book.
The first official Harry Potter colouring book is out on 5 November, publisher Studio Press, said today, and is already storming the bestseller charts, in ninth place on Amazon.co.uk's bestseller list with almost a month to go before publication. Running to almost 100 pages of artwork drawn from the Harry Potter films, it "includes all of the fan-favourite scenes, creatures, and characters of the series", said the publisher, "from Dobby and baby Norbert to Quidditch games and the unforgettable final battle between Harry and Lord Voldemort".

From Warner Bros comes an enchanting book filled with characters, film stills, scenes and detailed drawings used in the making of the Harry Potter movies. There's Dobby the House-elf, Hedwig and baby Norbert, as well as Quidditch games to partake in and, of course, the ultimate battle between Harry and Lord Voldemort.

The Harry Potter Colouring Book is the first in the Harry Potter colouring series. At the time of posting there are currently 4 titles available. Harry Potter Colouring Book 1, Harry Potter Magical Creatures, Harry Potter Magical Places and Characters, and Harry Potter Magical Artifacts. It is A4 sized measuring at approximately 28cm x 22cm. Inside this book there are 60 illustrations, 41 single page illustrations and 19 double page spreads.
The single page illustrations are made up of the following: 5 portrait type illustrations (main character surrounded by a border), 7 scenes (two examples contained within the book would be an illustration of Snape in his classroom surrounded by potions and Hermione creating the polyjuice potion in the bathroom), and 29 illustrations of miscellaneous objects (a few examples of this would be the 4 houses crests, Dumbledore's phoenix, a dragon, quidditch supplies and owls delivering mail.) Of the 29 miscellaneous object illustrations 3 of them are wallpapers and 9 contain a wallpaper type background.
The double page spreads are made up of the following: 10 scenes (examples of those included in the book: Voldermort fighting on the Hogwarts bridge, Harry and Hagrid on a motorbike and Harry running from the Chamber of Secrets) and 9 miscellaneous illustrations (a selection of wands, the front page of the Quibbler and lots of golden snitches.) Of the 9 miscellaneous illustrations 7 of them are either wallpapers or contain wallpaper type backgrounds.
All the illustrations are printed double sided, alcohol markers bleed through on to the following page. If you are extremely careful and light handed with water based markers they don't stain. However as soon as you place a second layer of colour down you will see shadowing on the next page. I had no problems with gel pens but only used them in small quantities. . The paper itself is non perforated, thin and of low-medium quality. A few of the illustrations shadow on to the next page, a notable example of this is the night bus (Harry accidentally calls the Knight bus when he trips over) scene on the right hand side of the paper the word Slytherin and a border from the opposite page is stained across the bottom of the bus.
I used a mix of Marco Raffines and Polychromos for most of the illustrations I've completed and found that my Marco Raffines worked quite poorly with this paper. They didn't grip the surface of the paper very well and left white marks. Even after using a blender the white marks didn't disappear entirely. I burnished 3 layers and would of expected less white marks at the end of it. My Polychromos however worked much better. Burnishing 2 light layers left a smooth finish that was able to accept more colour with no visible white marks.
There are a few pre printed black elements within the book. Around half the illustrations go in to the spine, a few illustrations have borders and some are in general smaller but sit extremely close to the spine. I found the spine loosens well after working it. My spine personally came glued very poorly and will require re-gluing to ensure it does not fall apart.
I own all of the Harry Potter colouring series and they are some of my favourite colouring books. However the spine and paper quality are not up to the standard of the other 3 in this series.
Filled with scenes from the movies and books, this colouring book is a fantastic relaxation tool for adults and fun activity for children. The pictures are much more detailed than I expected, meaning you can really get stuck in to a picture of your choosing whilst still feeling the challenge. There are also pages dedicated to house badges and popular characters and creatures throughout the series including Dobby the House-elf and Hedwig, Harry's trusty Owl. There are also useful images and film stills towards the back which aid as a reference for which colours you might want to use. As a fan though I loved them!
I was sceptical about purchasing this because of the many reviews explaining the paper being too thin. I really didn't have that problem at all. Although I didn't attempt to use pens because the paper is quite silky, I don't think pens would look as attractive once you've finished because the detail is so fine. I also was worried it would leak through because of other reviews I'd read, with the pencils this really wasn't a problem.
Definitely a fantastic product that I can't recommend enough to Harry Potter fans, colouring fans or just people looking to try out the colouring craze like I was. It's a guilty pleasure now; don't be ashamed! I'm not!
Oh, and if you did love it, there's a Potter magical creatures colouring book on it's way in January!
