This book has the most beautiful illustrations of forest creatures. And kids (or adults) can make them even lovelier by etching away at the black to uncover more colour. You can use the included stylus to create simple or intricate patterns, or even erase all the black.
The creatures are enchanting, with a touch of whimsy and the book is beautifully presented with shiny gold foil on the cover. Inside, each of the nine animals sits alongside a snippet about it and suggestions for etching.
I’m going to keep this in my bag to pull out for my kids when we’re stuck in waiting rooms!
