Reviews

."..But sometimes, the activity book is more a work of art, and this is when you really need to buy two copies. One for the kids and one for yourself. A Wonderful World of Animals is just such a book. Illustrated by Victor Escandell, this luscious book is a heady mix of kooky illustration of varying style, slipped onto pages brimming with striking typography that will send the Font Fanatic's heart aflutter." - Tania McCartney, Kids' Book Review
"With A Wonderful World of Animals, your child has full reign to express their creativity by transforming each page of animals into their own work of art, with prompts to get them started along the way. Suggested for ages 2-10, this doodle art book, beautifully illustrated by Victor Escandell, has over 120 fun pictures to color in, draw, and imagine. At the end of the book is also a detailed Animalpedia, which lets you discover the characteristics and quirks of all the animals included within./.../This really is a beautiful book, a perfect birthday or special occasion gift, which my daughter was quick to claim as her own" - Crystal Herron, kidthings.net
"Art, in all its forms, is an obsession for my daughters these days. They would literally colour, cut, paste and glitter glue for hours if I let them; some days I do, some days they get kicked outside to enjoy some fresh air! All of this art has lead me to have strong opinions on what makes a colouring book a winner: it needs to have thick pages (so markers don't bleed through), large shapes that are easy for young artists to colour (too much detail is frustrating when you're using crayons) and my personal preference is something that encourages creativity since my oldest is quite convinced that everything has to be coloured 'right' (i.e. the way it looks on the cover, or in the cartoon, etc). The cover of A Wonderful World of Animals Doodle Art Book by Victor Escandell says "Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you: 120 pictures to mess up, colour in, learn from, fiddle

The only rule is there are no rules! I loved telling my oldest that and seeing how she chose to interpret the pictures." Stacey Arthur, notjustbabybrain.com
