::About the book::
Follow the White Rabbit into this imaginative adult coloring book inspired by Lewis Carroll'sAlice'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 am a huge fan of adult coloring books. I have been since they came out. Coloring has always been a passion of mine, and as soon as "adult" coloring books came out I was smitten. They are more intricate and challenging, and a great way to just decompress while expressing yourself artistically. Coloring is a great stress reliever, and a great way to unwind.
I was even more excited when I seen there was a coloring book inspired by Alice's adventures in wonderland! It has everything that a fan of Alice in Wonderland could want! You get the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and tea party, the Queen of Hearts, Alice, etc. The artist of the book has taken a much more updated look than other Alice in Wonderland coloring books I have seen. She is definitely dressed more stylishly than I have seen her. There is even passages from the original book scattered throughout. They are not big so they do not take up too much of the page which I really appreciate. The pages are thick and durable. While coloring I had no trouble with bleeding through of any kind. I mostly use colored pencils to color in my coloring books, but in this one I also used pens, markers, and colored pencils. The book is broken up into chapters so you can work on a page at a time, a chapter at a time, however you want to do it. It's almost like reading the book through your coloring which is something I haven't come across so far.
This book also has a dust cover which is durable and nice. This is definitely a good buy if you are a lover of adult coloring books. Some of the pages are more challenging while some are more novice, but either way you look at it nothing is taken away from the beauty of the pictures. Each page is beautifully designed, and this has become one of my favorite coloring books so far. I will definitely be on the lookout for more coloring books by this artist, and I recommend this artist and book highly. You will have hours of coloring fun with this lovely book.
