What is a "coloring storybook"? It's a coloring book, a storybook, and more! You can color just the pages you want, and enjoy it like any fine coloring book. Or finish them all and create a wonderful storybook, a keepsake all your own, or one to lovingly share with children and grandchildren. Imagine their excitement and delight -- and yours too! -- when you read to them from a book you helped illustrate yourself! It's a gift your loved ones can treasure forever, a true family heirloom.
This coloring storybook from Skyhook Press, based on a traditional fairy tale, tells what happens when a very small duck sets off to demand the money he loaned to the King.
*************Please note: This "grayscale coloring book" (or “greyscale colouring book”) has pictures already shaded in gray, calling for a different kind of coloring. But that doesn't make it harder -- in fact, it makes it easier to get stunning results! For tips, search online for "grayscale coloring."
