Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book

Johanna Basford
#UG5182     $14.95

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 these eight high-quality, eco-friendly Woodless Colored Pencils. We're also offering a book of twenty detachable 6 1/2" x 4 3/4" postcards featuring illustrations from the book, so you can send your colored-in creations to family and friends! For all ages.

          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.

                                  Cannot use felt tip pens as some colors bleed thru the paper on the reverse side making impossible to use that page.

                                    I am 58 and have never lost the joy of coloring. I use colored pencils and color to my hearts content in this awesome book with designs as well as garden pictures and owls. Also includes a 'hunt and find' for different animals in each drawing. I have my son and his girlfriend both asking for one and everyone wants to color a page.....which I do not let them do!

                                    This is a great coloring book for adults who want to create something beautiful while providing hours of relaxing fun. I call it my "coloring therapy" as it helps to un-stress my day. I would love to see more like this, especially by this particular author.

                                          This book was a birthday present for my six year old daughter, and we have already spent a quiet morning before anyone else was up carefully coloring with pencils. She loves to have someone color with her, and this is a welcome respite from sloppy cartoon-ish princesses! She did ask me to color in some of the tiniest items, so might be too precise for younger children; not sure our son would have been interested at six, so would depend on the child. I'm sure fine point markers would be nice, too, but the paper is perfect for good colored pencils - thick and textured. The binding is good, and it should last the years it will take to truly enjoy every page. After seeing how lovely it is, I plan to purchase another for an adult doodler who needs a quiet activity during a stressful time. I purchased because it reminded me of the beautiful coloring books I received as a child, and am not disappointed!

                                            This was the best gift that my 25 year old daughters received! They both starting "coloring" immediately! A great book that will turn into a work of art when they are finished (which will be in about 3 years!)
