Lulu Mayo, the artist behind the A Million Cats, A Million Dogs, and A Million Bears coloring books, brings us a brand new coloring book featuring a variety of animals! In The World’s Cutest Animal Coloring Book Lulu presents us with 22 of the world’s cutest animals to color.
The 22 animals featured inside are: blue whale, koala, frog, badger, penguin, racoon, squirrel monkey, tropical fish, tiger, red squirrel, elephant shrew, alpaca, crocodile, dolphin, panda, peacock, rabbit, reindeer, sea turtle, tapir, orca, and fox.
Each animal gets its own double-page spread — there is a beautiful full-color illustration on left and a black and white line drawing on right for you to color. While I will most likely choose my own colors, I may mimic some of the techniques Lulu used like shading and blending — I do very much appreciate being able to study her coloring style.
The designs are circular in shape and the inky drawing lines are thin. Some of the designs include pre-inked black areas such as markings on the animals’ bodies and their eyes, noses, and hands/feet.
The World’s Cutest Animal Coloring Book is sized 9 x 10.5 inches and has a glue and string binding. Glue and string binding is *always* so nice because the string helps the spine be a bit more flexible and thus the book lays considerably flat when open when compared to a glue binding.
The book has 48 pages. Images are printed on both sides of the page. The paper itself is very smooth, white, and non-perforated. The paper has a satisfactory weight — it’s not quite medium-weight paper but it’s heavier than copier/printer paper.
The book concludes with a two-page world map showing where all the animals come from, two pages of animal facts, and one blank page that you could use to test your coloring mediums.
