The Time Chamber: A Magical Story and Coloring Book - Review

The Time Chamber: A Magical Story and Coloring BookThe Time Chamber: A Magical Story and Coloring Book by Daria Song
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published October 13th 2015 by Watson-Guptill

Korean artist Daria Song’s sequel to The Time Garden takes readers on a visual journey into a magical nighttime world seen through the eyes of a fairy.

This second book in the bestselling Time coloring series features the voyage of a fairy who, when the cuckoo clock chimes midnight, enters the human world. To the tiny fairy, everything seems enormous and magical, from the curtains to the chandelier to a mystical rowboat that takes her further into an inky adventure. With her she packs her favorite items, which colorers can find throughout the book’s pages: an owl-feathered pen, a star-scented spray, a time tape measure…even the key to the time chamber itself!

Filled with the imaginative, intricately detailed illustrations Song’s readers have come to love, The Time Chamber presents a view of our world made new—and ready for coloring.

The Time Chamber features extra-thick craft paper, ideal for non bleed-through coloring, and the jacketed cover with flaps is removable and colorable. Special gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine and a To/From page make it perfect for gifting to adults and kids alike.

In which I review a coloring book. Of course it's not just simply a "coloring book" is so much more.
So, so much more.

The story is, as the title suggests: "Magical." The adventure of the fairy was so much fun I felt like I had to share it with everyone as soon as I could.
It's simply timeless.

It's also pretty simple, leaving the actual storytelling to all the gorgeous illustrations. Proving that a picture really is worth a thousand words.
And the fact that you have the chance to color them in yourself makes them worth so much more.

I am so glad that adult coloring books are a "thing" now because I have missed coloring so much; it kind of felt like I had lost a part of myself.
So many years later I'm still upset that I never completely finished coloring all the ones I had.

 I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
