This stunning new coloring book by Johanna Basford (Secret Garden) takes
readers on a inky quest through an enchanted forest to discover what lies in the
castle at its heart. As well as drawings to complete, colour and embellish,
there are hidden objects to be found along the way including wild flowers,
animals and birds, gems, lanterns, keys and treasure chests.
Beginning at the entrance to the forest, the journey progresses through
woodland, rocky caves and tree-lined mazes, over streams and a waterfall, across
the trees tops, to finally reach the castle. Also hidden throughout the book are
nine symbols. Readers must find all the symbols to unlock the castle door at the
end of the quest and discover what lies within.
Appealing to all ages, the intricately-realized world of the Enchanted Forest
is both beautiful and inspirational.
Johanna Basford is an illustrator and ink evangelist who creates intricate
and hand-drawn illustrations rooted in the flora and fauna that surrounds her
home in rural Scotland.
