About the Author

Taro Gomi lives in Japan and has created more than 350 books for children, including Everyone Poops, My Friends, Spring Is Here, Scribbles, and Doodles.

More About the Author

Taro Gomi is probably best known in the UK for the highly popular Doodle Books, although his creative genius actually extends much further than the few translations that have appeared in English. The total number of his books in print in Japan exceeds three hundred, including children's books, art books, essay collections, and more. Gomi's books appeal to both adults and children-- since most of them consist mainly of pictures, they can be enjoyed by anyone.

Customer Reviews

Squiggles is one in a series of great Taro Gomi coloring books.
Johannah Berger
This book gets children (as well as adults) to really think outside the box and get creative.

I bought the Squiggles book for my granddaughter and the Doodles book for myself.

I'm so glad I bought this! I bought it for my 7 year old daughter (I bought Doodles for my other dd) and both girls were absorbed for a while with the books. The pages have much more than just pictures to color - it has little starter drawings and asks you to complete the picture. It's so perfect for the older child who is a bit beyond just coloring in the lines, but still provides some structure. Knowing how to read will make this book a more enjoyable experience for your child. Also, it's a very thick book - I originally bought it as a stocking stuffer, but it's way too thick for that.

This book is a must have. It is great for developmental learning and gives children directions that are easy to follow. I have worked with kids for several years and wish these books were out a long time ago so I could have spread the word sooner. Truly great books.

This is a must have book! My children typically are quickly bored with coloring books----but this is so much more than a coloring book. It encourages the children to add their own imagination and DRAW and DOODLE along with the artist. Taro Gomi's style is very whimsical and not intimidating for a child to add on to. My children LOVE their books and treat them almost reverantly. When the book is finished you have a THICK book of all their work in one book---sort of like an artbook. I know some people may be a bit turned off initially by the price---but its worth every last cent. Its a VERY THICK book that will keep your child's attention and nurture their own creativity. My children don't dare a skip a page---they have been completing the book in order (not necessary, but that's how much they love it) as they want to do every last page. If this book seems too large for you, his latest book 365 days is very good and half the size (but equally thick).

I bought the Squiggles book for my granddaughter and the Doodles book for myself. I absolutely love "getting lost" coloring with pencils and markers. The book will eventually become an art journal. I write comments about what I've drawn as well as the date. Great for kids. Great for adults!

I have at least 4 of these drawing & painting books. I am a 37 yr old female & I can tell you this is terrific therapy. I am very creative when it comes to drawing & painting. These books are not just for children, adults can enjoy these as well. I have had several surgeries & experience great deal of pain & this is the only thing that takes my mind off pain & puts me in a relaxing peaceful place, for that I am very grateful.

Fantastic tool for the beginning artist. Each page gives a description of what the picture could be completed with and lets the budding artist finish the drawing and then color in the page ! My grandsons(ages 5 and 3) love it..

We have the first two books, Doodles and Scribbles, and they were great. We had very high hopes for the third book. I don't know what happened. The whole book is full of about 7 categories, each one taking up 20 pages. It says giant doodle book on the cover, and it is giant in pages, but not in creativity and ideas. There are so many of the same blank things in a row (T-Shirts, Plates and Bowls, Mountains, under the sea) that you get bored. I do NOT recommend this book for your kids. If you want one that is fun and slightly like it, get one of the first two in the series.
