PRODUCT: Usborne - Monsters Colouring Book (www.usborne.com)Usborne Monsters Colouring Book

DESCRIPTION: A large 32-page paperback colouring book with a monster theme, including colouring, drawing, doodling and writing activities. Written by Kirteen Rogers and illustrated by Candice Whatmore. Suitable for children aged 6 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Not for the faint hearted, this fabulous children's colouring book from Usborne Books will instantly appeal to any girls and boys with a love of monsters...aaaaaaargh!

Not only is this book reasonably priced, but it is generously large in size, with a glossy cover and good quality thick pages which are easy for young children to turn over.

The book is geared towards a slightly older audience, and each double page focuses on a different monster theme, including among others, howling werewolves, swamp monsters, terrible trolls, mini-monsters, monsters under the bed, alien monsters, and mythical monsters...gulp!

Yet despite its content, this cleverly designed book really is anything but scary! The book is packed full of bright background colours and fun illustrations to instantly appeal, many of which are in black and white for your child to colour in themselves. What's more, these main colouring-in pictures have dotted lines down the side so that your child can cut out their finished artwork to display.

This book is far more than just a colouring book, however. There are many other activities to stretch your child's imagination, including for example, adding their own drawings and doodles, making up a monster menu, creating their own monsters, writing a monster story, and even escaping a Minotaur maze!

Each page has plenty of text and instructions for your child to enjoy reading, and there are many useful hints and tips on drawing and colouring techniques for them to follow. In addition, the book has a great educational element, teaching your child about many famous monsters from storybooks, legends and Ancient Greek myths.

The Monsters Colouring Book is, in our opinion, a must-have for any monster-mad child, with plenty of educational value as well as masses of activities to stimulate their imagination and creative side.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!
