Have you gotten into the craze for adult colouring books? I have one which I get out every now and again and I do find the concentration required stops you stressing about other things. I know the intricate designs and tiny colouring areas can have the opposite effect on others, though. I’ve heard some people find the standard adult colouring book quite stressful. I was recently sent two new drawing and colouring books which might appeal more to some people.
The books are Colour a cat and Doodle a poodle both by Hannah Rollings and published by Michael O’Mara books. The books are a mixture of pictures to colour and space to draw or doodle. They start with a double page spread on suggested techniques and then move on to each feature double page spreads on 30 different breeds of dogs or cats (depending on which book you choose).
Below is a selection of photos from both books to inspire you.
Both books would make great presents for creative, animal lovers. I think these books will appeal to older children and adults a like. To be honest, as much as I enjoy colouring, I don’t think my drawing skills would be up to the standard of this book. I think I would ruin it! I think I’ll save them for when the F is a little older (her drawings are still at the pure scribbles stage).
Disclosure: I was sent both these books for the purposes of this review. All thought and opinions are my own as are the photographs. Thank you again to Michael O’Mara books.
