A little friend of mine loves colouring books and was so delighted with her recent birthday present of crayons she exclaimed "Oh Mummy, I now have all the colours in all the world!" So when I saw this book for sale I couldn't resist buying an additional small present.

Don't you just hate those pictures and effigies of Whales, Dolphins, Birds of Prey - or whatever, which clearly demonstrate the fact that the artist has never seen a live version of the creature they are trying to reproduce... Not so here! This book is simply great because, having dived with Whales, Killer Whales and Dolphins over a great many years - I am able to say that this book is both accurate and instructional.

The quality of each of the 43 main drawings is as good as anyone might hope to find in any colouring book. The body proportions of the various creatures are correct as are the markings. More importantly, inside the book's covers are 30 small colour pictures - showing how most of the pages `should' look when completed. The larger pictures on the front and back covers also assist with another three.

In short, therefore, we have 43 outline drawings of various different Whales and Dolphins (with the occasional person, diver, ship, wreck or octopus included) and 33 examples of what each of those pictures should look like when finished. That leaves a further ten which are left to the child's imagination.

At the beginning of the work there is a fascinating and most informative Introduction which is reinforced with the full names and descriptions of the specific creature appearing below each picture to be coloured.

Not only is my little friend going to be very excited by this book, I should imagine by next week she will be the leading authority on Whales and Dolphins in her school.

Lovely illustrations, with some examples of how you might colour them in on the back cover, along with a few descriptions of the different types of dolphin etc

This is great as far as it goes - but it 's really more of a children's book than the more modish adult colouring books you see nowadays

HASH(0x939f0734) out of 5 stars I cannot believe I am reviewing a colouring book! 24 Jan. 2013

HASH(0x939f0788) out of 5 stars A Coloring Book for an Older Child 1 Nov. 2005
By Gwen Nicodemus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 4-year-old daughter has been obsessed with dolphins for the last few months. She wanted a dolphin coloring book as she was only temporarily satisfied with the dolphin coloring pages I found by going to google, clicking images, and searching on "dolphin coloring page." So, I searched amazon for a dophin coloring book and found the Whales and Dolphin Coloring Book is very different from the dolphin coloring pages you can find on google. Each picture depicts a different whale, dolphin, or porpoise and is accompanied by information about that particular animal.

The editorial review says the reading level is for preschool children, but it is in fact at a much higher level. That's okay though. The point is to color.

The sketches are nice. While it is a little painful to hand the book of sketches to a 4-year-old, my daughter does love the coloring book. Besides bottlenose dolphins, there are orca, striped dolphins, balean whales, and porpoises. I might have to buy another copy of this book in four or five years and see if it is less painful to hand the book to her then.

My sister-in-law is in a Nursing Home and one of the things she likes to do is to color. These are for adult and that is what I like about them.

My granddaughter loves this one two; all things fishy. LOTS of facts and reading material in it too. She's colored a few of the images but is a bit conflicted as to whether this is a BOOK (no writing in!) or a COLORING BOOK. Good one though.

HASH(0x93f27c24) out of 5 stars Great book to annoy your sister with 18 May 2015
By Daryl Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased a copy of this book from the Mystic Aquarium gift shop when I was nine, and my sister wouldn't stop giving me crap on the way back home for purchasing a coloring book where everything in it was either grey or black. In retrospect, it was probably the best $3.95 my parents ever spent on me. It had whales in it, which I love more than most human beings. I didn't have to substantially upgrade my colored pencil collection after buying it, or check out the local art supply stores for exotic imported colored pencils. It was fairly cheap, unlike the $13 they spent on my copy of "Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections," an apparently incredible amount of money in 1993. It annoyed my sister, which is something that every nine year old boy wants to do. Finally, it distracted me from all the whale books I kept checking out from the library.

If Dover were to add eight more illustrations to this book, and re-title it "Fifty Shades of Grey," it'd sell like hot cakes.
