Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in an inky black-and-white wonderland.

This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations – all waiting to be brought to life through coloring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. And there are also bits of the garden that still need to be completed by you. Appealing to all ages, the intricately-realized world of the Secret Garden is both beautiful and inspirational.

Customer Reviews

Not for my markers...pencils only! Review by L
I purchased this book through Amazon.

It's a lovely book with lots of pretties to color, however the suggestion to use markers...not a good idea. Mine bled through the page which will render the other side most unattractive. Glad that I only tried a single "test" bit of a leaf before a quick check of the other side of the page. I will still be coloring in this book, just not with the brand new set of markers I purchased specifically for this book.

MAYBE that should have been mentioned somewhere or a recommendation for a non-bleeding type of marker should have been made? It just says "use felt tip pens..."

That is the only reason I cannot give a higher rating to a lovely interactive book... (Posted on 5/14/14)

This is a great coloring book when u just want to sit and unwind...ounce u start coloring you just seen to get lost in it and time just escapes you....I purchased some high guiltily color pencils after using the standard one for a few pages and you can really see the difference. If you decide to make the investment it is definitely worth it........HAPPY COLORING..... (Posted on 5/6/14)
