The Carousel Animals Coloring Book's pictures are exquisite. Christy Shaffer's knowledge of the topic enable her to represent, with great detail, the fine artistic work of those who have created carousel animals for our 'riding' and 'viewing' pleasure. I have purchased several of the books for gifts, and one to be kept by me in my collection of Christy Shaffer works.
