Wonderland: A Coloring Book Inspired by Alice's Adventures by Amily Shen


Follow the White Rabbit into this imaginative coloring book inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, featuring intricate pen-and-ink drawings by acclaimed artist Amily Shen. Meet the Cheshire Cat, attend the Mad Hatter's tea party, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts in this evocative tale that invites you into a strange and beautiful new world of coloring.

My Thoughts:

I love this coloring book so, so much! It is wonderfully lovely!

As far as I can tell, Wonderland is being marketed as an "adult" coloring book, but it really looks to target talented children in the tween category, at least in my opinion. It's mostly coloring, but there's also a maze, and a "seek and find" game, along with little creativity prompts and exclamations to bring one's attention to something. As an adult, I love it perfectly great, but it can definitely be used for younger folks! (Which is true of all good "adult" coloring books, by the way.)

Each chapter starts out with a little summary of what has happened in the book, Alice in Wonderland. For that reason, it's probably best to use after reading the book, if you're concerned about spoilers.

The pictures are gorgeous and there's tons of room for creative coloring. It's a beautiful coloring book, and it's definitely a favorite of mine! If you are a fan of Alice in Wonderland or know of one, no matter what age, give Wonderland a try.
