Review

I really liked this coloring book. Its detailed enough that it kept my interest and made me wish I had better quality colored pencils. I've always loved Pagan coloring pages wherever I can find them, and really wish there were more Pagan coloring books out there.

About the Author

A transplanted New Yorker now living in Missouri, W. Lyon Martin has been working as an illustrator for 25+ years.

Lyon's love affair with art and illustration began at an early age. One of her earliest memories is of sitting with a pile of crayons and papers strewn around her proclaiming to her parents that someday everyone in the world would be looking at her art. In spite of her parents' attempts to steer her toward a more practical choice, she never wanted to do anything else.

So, Lyon followed her heart and earned a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology, then continued her art education at the School of Visual Arts, earning a B.F.A. in Graphic Design. These disciplines can still be seen in her work in her strong lines, textures and detailed patterns.

Her career began in advertising and graphic design in New York, where she was often called upon to create spot art for a variety of clients, which included Fortune 500 companies such as Kraft, General Electric and Sears. After her move to Missouri in 2000, she turned her focus to her true love, children's books. An Ordinary Girl, A Magical Child, a children's book she both wrote and illustrated was released in 2005. When the original publisher folded, An Ordinary Girl, A Magical Child was picked up by a new house, edited and re-released in 2008, then went on to become a finalist in the 2009 international COVR awards. Four additional picture books and a coloring book quickly followed.

Lyon can still be found sitting around her studio with papers strewn around her creating stories and illustrations for children. She has since traded in her crayons for watercolor, pen and ink, and a computer.

Format: Paperback
I love these pictures. They are rich and gorgeous but still simple enough that young children can color them. My kids all love them. There are some truly unique and interesting Goddesses. The pages include the name and a small paragraph about the Goddess. Most of these Goddesses I have never even heard of but they are amazing pictures!

This is a wonderful way to introduce children to spiritual beliefs from around the world and many different cultures. Even Christians should utilize this to help a child become well rounded culturally.

With expert art deco/art nouveau flair, this coloring book is a delight to behold even before you color it in! This is a book both you and your kids will enjoy working on together, while learning about lesser-known goddesses. Tired of all the TV-tie ins and princess coloring books? This is a refreshing change with images that are enchanting and delightful. Highly recommended for parents and children who are burnt out on Dora and Disney.

If you like history or you're curious to know about the ancient goddesses of the world, then you'll want to add this book to your library. Filled with 26 pages of stunning illustrations and a brief story about each goddess and the culture she represents, everyone is sure to discover something fascinating in this book. You may even find a goddess that shares your interests. Plus, you have the added bonus of coloring the pages if you want.
