Magical Jungle -- a Relaxing Friday Review

Penguin Random House gave me a copy of this book free of charge for this review in return for an honest review. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation.  As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation.

It has been a relaxing Friday for me and thus this post is so late. I have been enjoying some vacation time with my parents on Cape Cod. Today however I am sharing with you the latest coloring book from Johanna Basford, Magical Jungle


This new book was released this week!! And I have to say I love it!! This may be my favorite one yet. The pages are fun and have all sorts of animals in them. Some are a bit hidden and others are quite obvious like this hippopotamus.

 There are pages that look like medallions.


The pages are double sided for the most part but are a good quality without bleeding through. The pictures are fun and allow the artist to be whimsical or realistic. 

There are a variety of styles of pictures and really has something for everyone.
Overall I have to say I have been really enjoying this book and I even let Hazel start coloring in it this morning. She has been having fun with these flamingos. 

I can see why Johanna Basford's Secret Garden was such a hit that began the adult coloring craze. The Magical Jungle takes the same style pictures in a jungle setting and they are so fun. There are some that are more complicated and others that are easy to do in a sitting. 



As you can see from the pages we have been working on there is great variety and they are so fun. I hope you will check it out and start relaxing this weekend with me!!
