Enchanted Forest An Inky Quest & Coloring Book Review

I started coloring as a way to relieve stress, help anxiety and use as a creative outlet. Finding the right kind of coloring book proved challenging.

At first I thought it was about just coloring anything. I started out purchasing popular mandala adult coloring books. It seemed like the right thing to do as so many people liked them.

For me, the shapes seemed to spin instead of relaxing me. I could not envision the final look or even pick colors to use. There was no connection with all the shapes.

Enchanted Forest Adult Coloring Book CoverWhen I picked up my first coloring book that had a flower bouquet, I felt relaxed while coloring., and I finally felt creative. This led me to purchase more nature type coloring books.

The Enchanted Forest speaks to me on a whole different level. As a huge Alice in Wonderland fan, the Enchanted Forest brings my imagination to life.

This book can be completely colored from cover to cover. Even the cover can be colored. The quest in the book is to find all the animals and unlock what is behind the doors at the end of the book. I’ll be honest it’s a little odd to me. I’m not much into hide and seek.

What’s behind the doors?

This book includes single pages to color as well as 2 page wide images. The wide images are the only area in this book that I find flawed. Trying to color a wide image near the binding it can be a bit of a challenge. It’s not impossible to color them, but if you are a perfectionist, it may prove to be a real test of your skills.

The Enchanted Forest has an aged off-white look. If you prefer white pages, it is not what you will get. While the pages are thick, I have not used markers. Gel pens and coloring pencils have been my mediums of choice.

I purchased the book for $10.45 in August 2015 on Amazon with Prime. The book retails for $15.99.

My overall thought is this coloring book is fantastic! Anyone who loves nature and fairy tales will love this coloring book. I feel it is well worth full price, but I always suggest that finding a deal is worth the look.
