Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The quality of Color Me Happy is above and beyond any other coloring book I've had! The pages are single sided and thick so bleed-through doesn't ruin later pages. The artwork is beautiful and engaging. The imagery really does evoke the emotions the way Lacy Mucklow - a real Art Therapist - describes in her analysis of each chapter. I'm amazed at the depth of her writing and didn't know there was so much to this stuff. This book has about 100 pages to color, and even more if you color the samples. Due to the popularity of coloring books for adults, there is a lot of junky stuff being thrown up on the market. Make sure you get something made by a professional, and check the page count and quality of images if you can see them. Some have great art on the cover, but less detailed kid-level art inside. This book has detailed images throughout that I really enjoy coloring to make my own art.
I bought this beautiful adult coloring book as a birthday gift for my best girlfriend, also bought the set of colored pencils, she recently retired so now has the time to sit and relax.
Not one of my favorite adult coloring books. I think,this one is an individual preference.
