Fun with Cats in Paris

::About this book::
This gorgeously illustrated adult coloring book draws readers into the secret world of cats in Paris as they explore the city's most famous (and feline-friendly) spots. 

Say bonjour to the cats of Paris as they slink through its fabled streets and alleyways, from Montmartre to the Shakespeare and Company bookshop and into a feline-filled land of playful imagination. Featuring intricate pen-and-ink drawings of tabbies, Persians, Siamese, and more, this evocative coloring book’s frisky kitties lie in wait for your colorful stylings.

::My Thoughts::
Recently I have really gotten into adult coloring books. I love to color, and while I still love children's coloring books I find the adult ones are much more fun and challenging for me. They tend to relax me, and really help in melting away any stress. It's really a great way to relax. They force you to slow down, pay attention to detail, and just really enjoy.
I got the chance to review Cats in Paris, the adult coloring book, by Won-Sun Jang. It is adorable, and very well drawn. There are so many different pictures all dealing with cats in this book. You get cats in various places, and you get various cat patterns and prints. It's just really fun.
This would make a fantastic gift for any cat or animal lover out there.
The pages of this book are not thin, they are more heavy weight. The drawings are amazing, and there is so much detail in the illustrations. The only thing some may have a problem with it that the pictures are on each side of the page. I chose to use just colored pencils in this book so I would not have a problem with colors bleeding onto the other side. I have had no problem coloring in this way.
The pages are not really easy to rip out though. There is no perforated lines. This could be a problem for those that like to rip out and display their finished work.
Another thing I didn't really like is the pictures continue from one page to the next. This just makes it not look as smooth I guess, and if this was really needed I wish there were perforated marks so you could fit the two together to look more whole. However, I still greatly enjoyed this coloring book.
It is one of the more "easy" adult coloring books I have worked in. I would say that older children, and teens could even enjoy this book. I let my 8 year old pick a picture to color in, and he greatly enjoyed it. He had no issues with difficulty at all, and as he loves anything art related he enjoyed it.
The illustration on the cover of the book with the relaxing colors are wonderful, and I feel that the drawings were very fun.
I would recommend this book to those cat lovers out there who also just happen to love to color. I felt it was a very well done book, and although there is some room for improvement, I still had a lot of fun with it.
