About the Author

After receiving a fine arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley and completing two years of graduate work in design at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, Ruth Heller (1923-2004) began her career designing wrapping paper, cocktail napkins, greeting cards, and coloring books. After five years of rejection and one complete revision, Heller's first book, Chickens Aren't the Only Ones, about egg-laying animals, was published in 1981. It was so successful that the sequel, and second book to be published, Animals Born Alive And Well (1982), about mammals, quickly followed. In 1983 and 1984, her third and fourth titles, The Reason For A Flower (about plants that have seeds and flowers) and Plants That Never Ever Bloom (about plants that do not) were published.

She then began work on a collection of six books, the How To Hide series on camouflage and the magic of this phenomenon in nature, which covered the entire animal kingdom -- insects, birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and sea creatures. The next collection of books became a five-volume series on parts of speech: A Cache of Jewels and Other Collective Nouns; Kites Sail High: A Book About Verbs; Many Luscious Lollipops: A Book About Adjectives; Merry-Go-Round: A Book About Nouns; and Up, Up and Away: A Book About Adverbs. She also wrote and illustrated the unique and fascinating book Color, a charming and instructive guide to how art goes through the four color printing process.

Among the notable people who have had an influence on Heller's writing have been: Ogden Nash, Gilbert and Sullivan, Edward Lear, Hilaire Belloc, and Dr. Seuss. Heller says of her work, "All my books are nonfiction picture books in rhyme. I find writing in rhyme enjoyable and challenging, and I think it is an easy way for children to learn new facts and acquire a sophisticated vocabulary. Children are not intimidated by big words. I try to make my writing succinct and allow the illustrations to convey as much information as possible."

I have several coloring design books that I use to help me relax and express my creativity when I feel the need but don't have the time to write alot. Most of the designs are fun to color and have enough variety to make you want to move onto the next one. However, some of the designs are rather large in terms of the space between lines and this eats up pens, pencils, or markers like crazy. I also don't think this larger pieces are as relaxing and as entertaining to color.

I own three dozen design coloring books... FOUR of which are this book! I like coloring the same designs out of this book in different ways. The images are so beautiful when colored, and the designs allow so much room for creativity. Though some of the designs have quite large spaces, I have noticed that using permanent markers instead of regular ones spread easier, quicker, and more smoothly. (Just be sure to put another piece of paper behind it or it will bleed through onto the next page!!!) I highly recommend this book, whether you already have one or not!

I have several of her books now and I LOVE them! Who doesn't like to color? There are fun details in every book and it allows you to find color combinations that are unique and fun to you.. I absolutely recommend these books! Small detail to large detail, complicated designs to basics.. something for everyone.
Suitable for crayons, colored pencils, felt pens (I mostly use fine tip pens/felt pens.. )

I collect coloring books that have a more mature subject matter and intricate patterns. These were lovely and very well done. The love for coloring doesn't stop when you grow up. Most of these people become artists! I do not have that talent but for a few minites when I color you can feel the fun in creating something!
