Read full description of the books:I bought this book on a whim for my niece. I liked the blankness of the pages. A line across two pages invite the child to draw in some clothes hanging on a clothes line and another page has a pair of eyes suggesting he or she draw a monster. This book is from Japan so there is at least one mis-spelled word that I found but it’s a small price to pay for the imaginative fun the child will have. Far better than a coloring book where all one does is fill in the blocks of space, typically inspired by cartoons where color choices are already clearly defined. How much more fun is a coloring book with a crudely drawn crocodile and snake that says “these animals have polka dots” than a . . . well, I won’t name names but there are an awful lot of cartoon inspired coloring books that would have the child pick up a blue crayon for this part and a red crayon for that so that they can make theirs look just like what they’ve seen on tv. There are even some pages to cut out and make a box or an envelope. This book is just good fun. Yay for this book! Now if only my granddaughter were old enough to enjoy it . . . soon, but not yet.
