"Cats in Paris" A Magical Coloring Book Review

Cats in Paris: A Coloring Book of the Felines of ParisCats in Paris: A Coloring Book of the Felines of Paris by Won-Sun Jang
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

How does one properly rate a coloring book? I think that constructing a review was the most tedious part, in which I had to resort back to the book for its therapeutic purpose of relieving stress via coloring. SO, here's a review that will provide insight into the two biggest things that I think go into a coloring book...

1. Construction of the book- the pages are thick and heavy, which would be perfect for those who like to color with markers versus crayons or colored pencils. Personally, I dislike flimsy pages for fear that pressing down too hard will rip through the page. This did not happen at all, which made me a happy camper.

2. Coloring options- a coloring book needs to have some variety when it comes to choosing which pages to color. I thought that there were many different options, and since this was a cat themed coloring book, they all had felines in some shape or form. One thing that I shrugged at were how many similar pages there were (for example- multiple versions of cat stamps.... I got the hint with one or two, but there were a total of 6). I'm also not a cat person (SORRY!!), but I enjoyed the different scenes. Another thing that did bother me were the lack of Paris related scenes...

Overall, I received this book to review because I wanted to review a coloring book simply because I had not done so previously. I was pleased with this choice, but do think it could use some improvement in some areas, particularly in the balance of coloring options of both cats and of Paris.
