Book Review: Evolution: A Colouring Book

Colouring books are everywhere at the moment, as I'm sure you've noticed. I'm a big fan of the trend (I do love a nice bit of colouring in) so I was delighted to get a copy of this one to review...

Evolution: A Colouring Book, by Annu Kilpelainen "takes the concept of a colouring book and, well, evolves it a bit."

The book covers topics such as natural selection, continental drift and the mystery of what killed the dinosaurs.

It also includes lots of interactive elements. There are flaps to lift up, sea creatures to draw...

... and faces to mix and match to explore how our facial features have evolved over time.

There's also an experiment to follow and, of course, lots of great drawings to colour!

I tested the pages with colouring pencils and pens, and they both worked great.

The pages of the book are nice and thick so the pen didn't show through at all, hurrah!

This isn't something I'd buy for myself (it's not really part of the "adult colouring book trend") but it is the sort of colouring / activity book which I would have loved as a kid.

Dinosaurs + colouring in + science + fun interactive pages = an excellent combination!

Evolution: A Colouring Book is published by Cicada Books. RRP £9.95. It's available from Amazon UK, Amazon USA, the Book Depository and many other bookshops.
