Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest & Coloring Book
This stunning coloring book by Johanna Basford takes readers on a inky quest through an enchanted forest to discover what lies in the castle at its heart. As well as drawings to complete, color and embellish, there are hidden objects to be found along the way including wild flowers, animals and birds, maps, lanterns, keys and treasure chests. Beginning at the entrance to the forest, the journey progresses through woodland, rocky caves and tree-lined mazes, over streams and a waterfall, across the trees tops, to finally reach the castle.
Also hidden throughout the book are eight symbols. Readers must find all the symbols to solve the coloring puzzle on a pull-out poster at the end of the book.
Johanna Basford is a Scottish artist of coloring books and her mission is to help you create a masterpiece! The designs have a decidedly whimsical feel but the ivory paper makes them sophisticated as well for the discerning colorist. In her quest books, there are several hidden images throughout. Enchanted Forest has you finding symbols carved into stone tablets to unlock a castle door and discover what lies within. Secret Garden asks you to add onto the images as you find all of the creepy crawlies hiding in the garden. You will need a fine felt-tip pen for this one (such as 065313.) Puzzles are solved in the back, but dont peek! 86pp, 10x10 paper back w/jacket covers (that you can remove and color!)
