Oversized 10" x 14" format means more coloring pleasure and the pages are single-sided and perforated for a great experience; 20 pages plus a fold-out 19" x 14" poster.
If you've looked at the Querkles series and been intimidated, don't be. Although a page may look like a difficult maze of areas, it is really quite relaxing to fill in the different areas, watching the image gradually come into being. (The big picture and numbers could be too much for a child; also you want good lighting to work on these, as the printing for the lightest areas is quite light to not show through. To get started, pick out one of the less complex drawings and choose five colors with a variety of shades. For your first, maybe just use five shades of the same color to get started; either browns or greys will work great with these cats. You'll quickly see how the drawings fill in and figure out your own approach for the most fun. (I tend to go from lightest to darkest so if I misapply a light color and catch it later, the dark color can cover it.)
I like experimenting with different techniques, like marker pointillism and filling in the sections with short fur-like strokes. The Siamese, which I did entirely with different densities of brown and black "fur" strokes (except for light blue in the eyes), came out looking just like my two dear departed seal points. I fear I'll never want to go back to regular "boring" adult coloring books!
