About the Author
From the Publisher
From the ruby-throated hummingbird to the monk parakeet to the great blue heron, this book features realistic illustrations of songbirds, game birds, waterfowl, and many other birds in their natural habitats. A color guide appears on the inside back cover.
Bestselling author/illustrator Marjorie Sarnat offers a wonderland of intricate, swirling patterns that capture the majesty of one of the animal kingdom's most beautiful creatures.
Covered with flowers, paisleys, and other fun-to-color patterns, these adorable owls are posed against vivid backgrounds brimming with intricate designs in lush, tapestry-like settings. 5 Star review from Aunt Bunny : "This book is a work of art. The artist went to great pains to make each picture unique and beautiful."
Fanciful Sea Life
Features a variety of stylized ocean creatures with highly detailed and decorative backgrounds. Images include schools of exotic fish, a sunken ship and treasure chest, a seashell castle, and such underwater dwellers as jellyfish, an octopus, sea turtles, striped angelfish, whales, and more.

This book like all of Marjorie's is adorable. Full of fun kittens, treats, flowers & so on. It is not overly details but detailed enough for adults & I think kids would love it as well. All of the pages are printed on one side & they are perforated for easy removal. None of the art runs into the binding & each page has a border. You get a full page which is excellent. I am tired of books that the subject is just in the center with nothing else to color.
As with all coloring books if you are using markers or pens, use blotter paper between the pages. Crayons & pencils are fine. I make copies onto marker paper so that I can color each page more than once. I have included some samples from inside as well as the front, back & inside covers along with 2 pages I completed using Copic markers & Sakura gel pens.
It reminds me of the four kittens my husband and I rescued and adopted (we also caught their feral mama and neutered and released her back around our house. The kittens were so playful and fun and I get the same feeling from this coloring book.
As with all of Ms. Sarnat's coloring books, there is a high level of detail. While there are some small areas to color, I don't consider the designs to be intricate and hard to color.
This is what I experienced while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium.
31 Cute and fun to color kitten designs by Majorie Sarnat
The designs are printed one side of the page
Paper is the usual Creative Haven quality: white, medium weight, slightly rough and has perforated pages.
Glue Binding but with perforated pages so removing a page is fairly simple.
The designs stop well before the perforations and each of the designs has a framing line at the outer edge.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper
Water-based markers bleed through in spots and show colorful shadows on the back of the page
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows of color on the back of the page. India ink pens can bleed through when I apply more than one layer of ink.
Coloring pencils work well with this paper and even better than many of the more recent Creative Haven coloring books I have bought. I was able to get good pigment (color) lay down, layer the same color and multiple colors and to blend easily using a pencil style blender. I tested both oil and wax-based pencils with similar results. Hard lead pencils, like Verithins, leave dents on the back of the page.
I suggest either removing pages from the book to color or using a blotter page under your working page. I like card stock as it keeps ink from seeping through and damaging the pages below.
Altogether, I'm highly satisfied with this product and recommend it to anyone who enjoys colouring - and very cute kittens!
