Field Guide: Creatures Great and Small - 35 prints to Colour by Lucy Engelman (Wide Eyed Editions)

Field Guide: Creatures Great and Small

35 Prints to Colour

Written and Illustrated by Lucy Engelman

Published by Wide Eyed Editions

We're spoilt for choice this week with our artistic offerings and here's another gloriously luxurious colouring book and field guide from rising Non Fiction superstars Wide Eyed Editions.

Their "Field Guide" series by Lucy Engelman offers us the chance to not only find out more about the species we share a planet with, but allows us to colour in brilliantly detailed black and white art-sized prints of them.

As the title says, all creatures great and small are catered for here. If you love octopi, or can't resist the fluffy charms of a raccoon, you're in for a serious treat. Colouring in takes us away from the stresses and pressures of modern life, and it's lovely to slip into that altered mind-state of staying within the lines for a few hours with a glorious book like this.

Charlotte's best bit: Making her squid an angry bright purple. Oosh!

Daddy's Favourite bit: More colouring brilliance. At this rate we're going to need new pencils and pens!
