A Million Bears Coloring Book Review

A Million Bears is the third book by talented illustrator Lulu Mayo.  I do confess that I had hoped that her third book would be bunnies.   She did, however, state that there would be some bunnies in a Million Bears so I wasn’t too disappointed (there are bunnies!)

Lulu Mayo  has previously created A Million Cats and A Million Dogs as coloring books for adults.    She is due to release A Million Owls in early 2017.

All of her books in the “Million” series comprise an adorably cute type of animal, showcasing different breeds,  in a variety of quirky and imaginative settings.   They all seem to be on the plump side which serves to make them cutely adorable and cuddly.

Cover & Layout

The cover of A Million Bears features adorable plump pandas, koalas, polar bears and bears amidst a swirling sea of shades of blue.   There is pre printing in blue, peach, lemon and gold foil highlights.   The cover and format of the book are consistent with the previous books illustrated by Lulu Mayo.

The back cover features two plump pandas with a background of sky blue and white line art featuring the imagery from the front cover.

The book measures approximately 18cm x 22.8cm   (7 in x 8.9 in).

The cover art has been reproduced as a title page that you can color in and test your mediums on.

The paper is white, medium quality and has a slight texture to it making it ideal for layering pencils on.

Illustrations in the book have been printed on both sides of the paper and are all portrait orientated.

Illustrations

Most of the illustrations are double page scenes where the line art does run to the spine of the book.   The book does lay down flat once you have gently pushed it down a few times.    There are 15 illustrations approximately in A Million Bears that set out as a single image on the page.

I fell in love with the rotund bears on the cover of this book when I first seen it and knew it had to come home and join a million others 🙂

These bears are like no other bears I’ve seen before!  They gather together for cute tea parties, sail the seven seas, have a variety of outfits and adventures.     This book is pure cuteness overload.

As well as bears, there is an abundance of other elements to color as well, flowers, buildings, clouds and sea life among other things.

A Million Bears Coloring Book Review

For fans of background effects, there are not a lot of pages that have enough white space to weave  your magic, but you will find a handful that would pop with a background added in.   There are a few double page scenes that have a pre printed black background on them.

The illustrations have a lot of elements within the page but the detail is generally not finely detailed.    There are large areas of space on these images that make it easy for new colorists and colorists with health and visual issues to enjoy.

I’m Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I’m all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
