About the Author
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children's book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You'll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss's long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot's Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

The designs are detailed but not too intricate. Many of the designs spread across two pages and parts of the design are lost in the binding area. In my copy, the pages line up fairly well. What is a problem is that the binding is a hybrid of glue and sewn. It has many stitches and the glue is heavier on certain pages. Those pages are difficult to lay flat for coloring. While there are not many of those pages, the ones that have the issue will be very difficult to color as even when I break the binding, I have to struggled to get my very sharp pencil point into the coloring elements. For this issue, I dropped my review to four star.
The designs are derived from Dr. Seuss books rather than exact duplicates. According to the publisher, these are the books utilized: And to Think that I Saw It on Mulberry Street, The Cat in the Hat, The Cat in the Hat’s Songbook, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?, Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book, The Foot Book, Horton Hears a Who!, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew, If I Ran the Circus, If I Ran the Zoo, The Lorax, Oh Say Can You Say?, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!, On Beyond Zebra, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Scrambled Eggs Super, There’s a Wocket in My Pocket!, What Pet Should I Get?, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories, and You’re Only Old Once.
This is what I experienced while coloring in the book and testing my coloring medium on the paper:
46 Designs derived from a few of Dr. Seuss' story books.
Printed on both sides of the page
Paper is white, medium weight, fairly smooth and non-perforated
Hybrid glue/sewn binding that is difficult to open to lay flat
Designs reach into the binding area/spine
Many designs spread across two pages and important elements are divided onto both pages
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page. These will leak through and mar the designs on the reverse of the page.
Water-based markers and India ink pens do not bleed through but do leave shadows on the back of the page. These will be noticeable on the designs that are on the reverse of your working page.
Gel pens do not leak through but require additional drying time.
Colored pencils work well with the paper. Though it is smooth to the touch, it still has enough tooth to grab pigment. I tested both boil and wax-based pencils and got good results from layering the same color, multiple colors, and blending with a blending stick.
Nice & chunky, good sized, well bound, fairly thick pages (printed on both sides, not perforated). Paper has a smooth but very slightly textured tooth. Dry medium would be fine, wet medium might go through pages.
There are a few issues, such as, many of the images are split over two pages, so some of the vital parts of the image are right in the crease. Also, most of the images are either just like or VERY similar to the originals, but a few are either given a modern treatment or look like they were traced b someone with a shaky hand.
For the price, just what the Dr. ordered!
Imagine coloring your own Sneetches! or trying to figure out the whatchmacallit the boy took apart! This book is total Dr. Seuss fun with the added pleasure of YOU getting to choose your own colors. Don't you DARE cut out the color pages, but leave them in and just page them through like a story book and remember the stories your used to read! Have fun!
That makes me truly sad to say that actually!!
I have loved Dr Suess since I was just a wee little one!
He is still my favorite to this day because of the impact his books have had in my life, my children's lives and how he has touched the lives of SO many others. So when I found out that there was an official Suess adult colouring book, I was VERY happy!!
So when the sale price came along......I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!
It came a few days ago and I want to love it! I REEEEAAALLLYYY do! I am sad to say that, in my humble opinion, it could be much better and more of the well known characters in it. Don't get me wrong, there are about half the book, good pages that I will color eventually. The others are either nothing I like, drawn too thick, or just a pattern of the same thing (like a filler type page).
So the technical specs are that it's a large square (10"). They are double sided printed, white, thicker pages. In my experiences with similar books you won't want to use very wet mediums like alcohol markers or paints because of bleeding through (unless you didn't want to color the opposite side) and recommend using card stock or a few sheets of paper as a buffer for any medium you choose.
I'm sure there are others who have a flip through of this book by now so you can judge for yourself if you want it. I will be keeping it because the price was good and I still love my Suess!!!
