Review: Wonderland by Amily Shen

Meet the Cheshire Cat, attend the Mad Hatter’s tea party, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts in this evocative tale that invites you into a strange and beautiful new world of coloring.

Reviews

This book is filled with beautiful artworks and it is not only a coloring book, it also tells a story as you go along. They drawings are intricate and the style is pretty and vibrant. They’re not original illustrations from the Lewis Carroll novel or the Disney adaptations, however, they are unmistakably from Wonderland.

In my opinion, it doesn’t even need to be colored to be appreciated, but you can definitely add more life to each page. The paper quality is very good and while they are pretty thick, I really wish the pages were printed in one side rather than double sided. You probably won’t see colors from the other side if you’re using color pencils, but I’m a bit hesitant about using markers.

* I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review.

AMILY SHEN is a renowned Taiwanese artist. She had worked as a custom and shoe designer and is now a full-time illustrator and art instructor. She has published three bestselling drawing books. WONDERLAND is her first adult coloring book.

ExcerptPB

I know the drill. Open my orders, commit them to memory, destroy them.

X X X

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

Protect the heir to the throne of Montrovia, uncover the person or persons behind the plot to assassinate him in order to take control of this geographically important sovereign nation, and eliminate the threat.

Get close to the hottest Prince on the planet and work for Black X, the double-black covert group so secret even the President of the United States is on a need-to-know basis?

I accept.

I think about what he said about me looking good in a bikini. Do they want me to hookup with this Prince in order to protect him? Are you kidding me? I’m valedictorian. I have the school’s highest scores in everything from parkour to the number of ways I can kill a man.

I frown as I’m burning my orders in the fireplace. “Sir, may I speak freely about my assignment?”

“I’m afraid I’m not privy to your orders. My job was to help choose the student best fitted for the task based on the parameters given to me.”

“And one of those parameters was that I look good in a bathing suit?”

He chuckles. “In this situation, my dear, they need an operative who is not only the best and brightest but one who can also demand male attention. Your handler is waiting for you outside. You leave immediately.”

“But I need to go pack. Tell people goodbye.”

“I’m afraid there’s no time.” He stands up and, in an uncustomary show of emotion, hugs me briefly. “Godspeed, X.”
