Read an Excerpt

Introduction

Before I knew it, cats began to find their place in my life. 

I work from home, and I found myself wanting to share my day with someone. That’s when I met my first cat, Eva. After that, cats started to fill my empty spaces. They would stay near me—by the desk, beside the table, and under the bed before I went to sleep. Cats seemed to be close by all the time. 

In order to learn their subtle language, I discovered that patience and observation is key. I was inspired by their smooth and fine movements, their eyes shining with a variety of colors, and their charming communications. The illustrations in this book are proof of such inspiration. 

At first cats may seem cautious and shy. But they have a surprising charm. They approach you slowly and one day you realize they have taken over your entire life. I hope this book will become as enchanting as cats are. Fill in the blanks using your creativity.

The sketches, lines, and patterns in this book leave room for you to express your individuality—because a cat’s charm cannot be expressed in just one way! So, without further ado, I invite you to a magical world of cats as they slink through the streets of Paris and into a realm of imagination.

This coloring book is absolutely adorable! I took it on a weekend trip to a Robotics competition this past weekend and I had fun coloring in the car and at the competition. This is my first "adult" coloring book. ( I also own the Harry Potter coloring books, but those are more YA). I thought I would get bored coloring as I am more into drawing myself, but the cute designs kept me away from Candy Crush during the 5-hour drive and the many hours at the competition. What makes this coloring book super awesome is that it is all about cats, fluffy adorable cats. Today I plan on coloring one of the cats blue!

Take an artistic trip to Paris. From its fabled streets and alleyways, from the hill of Montmartre and Shakespeare & Company bookshop to Notre-Dame Cathedral, one can take a magical coloring trip with cats throughout the famous City of Light.Cats in Paris features pen and ink drawings of cats of all kinds-Persian, Siamese, Tabbies, and more. According to the author, Won-Sun Jang, a cat's charm cannot be expressed in just one way so there is plenty of room for creativity with this adult coloring book. . .the sketches, lines and patterns leave room for you to express your individuality. The paper in this book is sturdy and heavy and I think several mediums would work well with it. I used colored pencils for my samples and they went on nicely but I would try markers as well as I don't think they would bleed through, although pictures are on both sides of the pages in this book. I liked that most of these pictures did not have a lot of small detailing to color. I like the larger coloring pictures better. I enjoyed the pages I colored, although several of the scenes go off of the edge of the book, and I did find that aspect a bit challenging. This book would be great for any cat lover and it would also make a great gift for any creative coloring cat lover. I received this book from Blogging for Books. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.

A Magical Coloring Book was magical, cute, and fun. All about cute and different cats. Basic drawings to color. The cover is removable and also has a scene you can color, as well. Enjoyable, basic with many choices of cats to color, also has a little story. I feel Young readers, Juvenile readers and Adults will enjoy this cute coloring book. Does not have intricately drawn scenes, but simple, cute cat scenes. Not a story of Paris, or not to me. Enjoyable coloring book. *Received for an honest review from the publisher* Rating: 4 Heat rating: N/A Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

My teenage daughter and I have been having a lot of fun with adult coloring books lately. When I saw Cats in Paris, I knew that we needed to try this one. We have really enjoyed it. The pages are a very nice and heavy weight paper. The book cover is beautiful and is actually a cover that wraps around the book and can be removed. On the inside is a city scene that can be colored as well. Some of the pictures have very tiny lines and spaces which make them a little difficult to color, however, this book seems to have a good range of pages that have varying levels of difficulty. I look forward to coloring many more pages in this book with my daughter. It is a great way to relax and spend time together. I received a complimentary copy of this book through Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review.

Coloring books have always been the craze, but now adults have their own books to play in. Adults can now place their own style into coloring without worrying if they go outside of the lines- when we mess up, it ADDS to the art, not ruin it! I enjoyed this book too, but I have to admit, it wasn't quite like my other coloring books. Some of the drawings were so basic- I couldn't understand how critics gave Won-Sun Jang so mmuch hype. To me, my son could have created a couple of the cat scenes. I'm not going to lie though- I enjoyed coloring in it. :) It was still very cute- just not as detailed or as enchanting as some of the other coloring books I've colored in or have observed. As you can see in the video, they're adorable, but there seemed to be a lot missing. Cats in Paris, A Magical Coloring Book, I hate to say, isn't as magical as 'they' made it to be. It's basic and for an adult book, it felt rather elementary. The photos weren't aesthetic and thought I did love a few pages, I will pass it on to my Ewoks. Maybe next time!
