I chose it for my nine year old granddaughter, but soon found myself 'helping' by carefully filling in some of the picture... I used gel pens but pencils, water colour etc would all work well. There is something hypnotic and relaxing about working away at the really lovely pictures. With some music playing, a quiet time becomes a valuable chance to calm down and think about nothing but how pretty you can make the page.
The quality of the paper allows for building up layers of colour, pressing quite hard. Maybe insert a protective piece of paper between the pages when you working to ensure completely unmarked following pages, when working with pens.
The lines are clear enough to follow but soft enough to disappear once the colour is applied. Each picture tells a story which is pleasing to imagine. At the beginning of the book there is a helpful Introduction to the methods you can use with some useful tips about effects you can create with layers of colour. I think this teaches how to enjoy painting and penmanship. Being careful to stay within the lines and using the pens to make a texture builds confidence and may well lead to more individual creativity.
Each image is on the right page, grey scale with shading and light lines, with a reference image on the left. Medium quality paper, good for a colouring book, not a proper weight water colour paper, but then who would expect that at this price?
Pair this with Botanical Painting with Coloured Pencils by Ann Swan and some decent pencils you have everything you need to really move your colouring up a notch.
Definitely one of the best, if not the best, colouring book we've bought so far, and we've bought nearly all of them including the special editions.
Definitely recommend it
I use this book when I just want something simple and fast to colour before I get stuck in to a more intricate colouring book.

I found the images bland & boring & there seemed to be something wrong with some of the faces.
