I like dragons and they are VERY cute.
Average paper for these type of coloring books. Images are printed one-side only, and that is a huge plus for me, as I use alcohol based markers.
Coloring Medium: 3.5/5
Again, as I stated above paper is not very thick - markers bleed through, and if you try to color small narrow areas with markers you will get some feathering. Gel pens and colored pencils are fine.
Total: 4/5, Still wish the paper was a bit thicker though.
1: Cute little drawings of dragons! So cute! They do scale painting, playing with shoes, playing with slide-rules, buffing their scales with baby powder, etc. Much Adorableness.
2: The scenes have little captions, and while I was skimming quickly, I did not see any errors. Its/it's errors drive me up a wall, *especially* in books meant for children (how will they learn the difference if the books get it wrong?! ARGH!). I have grabbed up a Sharpie and edited more than one of my kid's books, when she was younger. This book? I saw no errors! This means so much to me.
3: Did I mention the dragons? Great for kids of all genders who like to color. Great for anyone who likes to color, really, especially with so many coloring books being media tie-ins. (Media tie-ins can be great, but sometimes, one just wants something with a more open universe.)
4: Counting the front page and backmatter page, there are 16 colorable illustrations. (14 if you don't count those two.) They have good detail for coloring -- not overly simplistic, but with good, clear lines. Younger kids can likely ignore some of the "interior" lines and still have enough darker-lined guides to help them with the hand-eye control stuff. Kids with more coordination-practice should find enough options (especially if they add patterning to the laundry dragons themselves) to keep them entertained for a while. ...same with adults.
(I cannot speak for the paper, but have heard it's pretty good, and should hold color well.)
I am really tickled by this coloring book. Dragons! Adorable little dragons!
Maggie is such a smart and heart-filled author, whether for children or adults. She never talks down to anyone but instead, draws in the reader to a world of wonder while offering teaching that soaks in quite naturally.
Wonderful stuff! And makes me want to break out my crayons, no matter that I'm old enough to be a grandma.
