Publisher Comments:

Coming in March 2015, Johanna Basford's stunning follow-up Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest and Coloring Book. Pre-order now!

Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in an inky black-and-white wonderland.

This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations—all waiting to be brought to life through coloring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. And there are also bits of the garden that still need to be completed by you.

Appealing to all ages, the intricately-realized world of the Secret Garden is both beautiful and inspirational.

I got wonderfully lost for hours. The beautiful and detailed pictures are filled with all kinds of flowers, vines, and leaves, with butterflies, ladybugs, and other garden creatures. Some pages are garden scenes; others are round, like mandalas, with the flowers arranged in patterns. Some pages are mostly open, with vines wandering gracefully across, while others are filled from edge to edge. The quality of the printing is very good. The paper is decent quality: not too thin, though not perfectly opaque; almost white, but not quite. I would prefer heavier, whiter paper, but I am happily ordering a second and a third copy, so I can color the pictures on both sides and hang them up.

I recommend this book to creative adults and children over age 8(ish). Many of the details are quite tiny. You will need fine-tipped pens or sharp colored pencils.
