Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book

Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book

Johanna Basford
#UG5182 $15.95

A rare breed of coloring book, Secret Garden is beautiful, inspiring, and clever. The intricately detailed black-and-white ink illustrations of garden-themed idylls are a joy to color in and add doodles to. Plus, shrouded among the blossoms and such are dozens of hidden little creatures and treasures, from caterpillars and songbirds to keys and a message in a bottle (maps of the pictures in the back of the book reveal all the hiding places). The book's creator suggests using pens to add your creative splash, but we (nonconformists that we are) love this bright set of twelve skinny markers! For all ages.

                  I bought this for my Mom, who loves gardening but who has a dismal early January birthday. I hoped this would spark some spring garden fever as well as be something joyful and meditative to do on long winter days. Boy, is it ever! The illustrations are endlessly fascinating, and there's plenty of opportunity for you to add your own doodles to the pages...this is SO not just a coloring book. My only regret is that I didn't get an extra copy for myself.

                        I bought this for my granddaughters as part of a huge package of books. The girls range in age from 3 to 13 and have a wide variety of interests. I liked this so much that I am going to buy one for me.

                          I gave this book as a gift to my sister, she always likes to color to relax in the evening. I want one for myself too. All of the illustrations are perfect,
                          The paper is great to work on,and to just look at and find the hidden objects. I have never been disappointed to get anything from Bas Bleu
                          What a wonderful company.
