Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With this charming and instructive coloring book youngsters (and adults) can learn a great deal about the world's wild creatures and have fun at the same time. Detailed, accurate, ready-to-color illustrations depict 47 species from around the globe, including the rhinoceros (black, white, and Indian), Grant's zebra, impala, giraffe, camel (dromedary and Bactrian), European and American bison, llama and vicuña, giant panda, elephant (Indian and African), gnu (wildebeest), chimpanzee, hippopotamus and pygmy hippopotamus, gorilla, snow leopard, yak, Asiatic buffalo (water buffalo), jaguar, bighorn sheep, black bear, polar bear, black-backed jackal, reindeer (caribou), tiger, red kangaroo, giant anteater, and more.
Each illustration is accompanied by a brief caption describing the habits of the species; many depict the animals as they might appear in their natural habitat — lions drowsing in the heat of the African veldt, a leopard lying in ambush on a limb, a giant panda contentedly munching bamboo, a polar bear and her cub surveying their icy domain, and more. Several double-page spreads depict exciting scenes of predator-prey relationships: muskoxen warily eying a pack of wolves, a mountain lion stalking mountain goats, and others. Colorists of all ages will find this exciting new volume irresistible; artists and designers will also find practical use for these accurately rendered royalty-free illustrations.

Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My! What a wonderful book! Full page, detailed animal illustrations (eyes, stripes, etc), to color with crayons, colored or water color pencils, for animal lovers of all ages. Add in the Dover copyright (see below) allowing you to copy these pages for craft and graphics projects, and the possibilities are unlimited.

A coloring/reference/craft book with illustrations on front and back or each page, with 39 illustrations, including four 2 page illustrations, of large, land-dwelling, mammals, arranged geographically by continents, with a brief caption relating to each animal at the bottom of every page. Printed on heavy weight, bright white paper.

Did you know; there are 3 species of Zebra; or that the North American Grizzly, Kodiak, and European brown bear are all same specie called the Brown Bear; Bighorn Sheep engage in butting duels that last up to 20 hours; or that the llama is a member of the camel family? I didn’t until I read the descriptive captions under each Illustration. Gotta love this book!

I never would've guessed my friend and neighbor, who drives a bulldozer for a living, would be the type to sit down with a coloring book but his colorings are beautiful and not juvenile at all. And he says, which also never occurred to me, that coloring is very relaxing. I never saw it that way as a kid but looking back, I guess coloring was actually relaxing. I'm very impressed with his, what I'm gonna call, artwork. He's somewhat picky about what he wants to color. The more detail in a pic to color, the better. And he's been very satisfied with the books I picked out for his birthday. He loves that the art of each of the pics to color is so detailed. He has bragged about my choices and so has anyone else who he's bragged to that I picked them out. I've never seen such beauty in a coloring book myself. I bought four of them and they all deserve the same praise so I guess I'll just copy and paste this review on each of the products.

I just purchased these Dover COloring Books for my mother and she loves them. The detail is out of this world and the variety of colors you can use are only limited by your inagination. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very informative captions accompany the pictures, it would be helpful if there were color thumbnails for all of the pictures instead of only a few, although the captions did describe the color of the animals. Again I should have read the description of the book closer so I knew it was printed on both sides of the paper and did not have perforated pages.I would not have ordered it I don't think.

This book purchased for my daughter aged 51 to be used as therapy. It is difficult to find adult themed coloring in books with this being the perfect solution at a most reasonable price.
We live in Australia resulting in the freight costs far exceeding the cost of the books purchased however, we were quite happy to pay in order to acquire these delightful editions.

I was surprised to find out that they even made adult coloring books. I have been purchasing the My Little Pony and Thomas the Train ones from the dollar store for years. I am a 28 year old woman, but I still find coloring relaxing so these coloring books work great! They arrived on time without any issues.
