My Review

I’ve been bitten by the colouring bug, so when I received Wildscapes by Stephanie Holm for review from Murdoch Books, I was over the moon: a) because it’s Australian art and b) because it’s colouring in. My inner child celebrated the beautiful illustrations between the pages of this massive 88 page book. It has all my favourite Australian wildlife in it and best of all…a Spotter’s Guide! Stephanie has written a lovely introduction and the book is full of interactive tasks, not just colouring in. There are sketches you can add your own texture to, so let your imagination run wild. Children of all ages will love this beautiful form of art therapy. Thank you, Stephanie and Murdoch books for my ARC and hours of creative pleasure.
