MY THOUGHTS -
I am a cat lover so naturally I loved this book!  The pictures of cats are very cute, although they are not as detailed as I would like in an adult coloring book. A few of the pages are a waste to me - they are just a repetitive design (I don't really care for those kinds of pages) but some of the other ones are nice. I really can't wait to start coloring in this.

My husband saw this laying on the kitchen counter after I opened up the package. He picked it up and looked at every page!!!! He was commenting on how cute it was and pointing out his favorite ones. I thought this was so funny. I told him he could color with me sometime! We'll see.

A couple other reviewers commented that there were very few pages of Paris. This did not even phase me - it was the cats I was after not Paris. Even though not very detailed for an adult coloring book - still very cute! And the quality of this book is very good, nice thick pages so you can use markers (although I would probably use colored pencils myself).

Here are a few of the pictures -

And here are the hubby's favorites, he just thought the ones with the yarn were so cute -



Thank you Penguin Random House for sending me this book for my honest review!

  1. You're right, the quality is really great! I loved the book jacket that we can color. I thought that was neat and unexpected.
    Lol Your husband's favorites are some of my favorites too. I kinda like the ones without the busy pattern better, myself.

  2. I love that the hubby likes the coloring book! The most I've gotten out of mine is a grunt or an absent minded 'cool' when I show him something.

    1. I know right?! I'm pretty sure it was the cats that hooked him.
