Mollang Hide and Seek Coloring Book Review
Anyone that knows me, will know what stole my heart with this coloring book. The cuteness appeal is enough to make me melt but add a bunny (that’s easy to color) and I’m smitten. Mollang Hide and Seek reminds me a lot of Where’s Wally but in a cute bunny way. If you do not like double page spreads that are packed to the rafters with detail, look away now.
Cover & Layout
Unusually this Korean coloring book has a hardback cover with a lovely aqua background. You can immediately see from the cover art that it the drawings inside will be filled with detail. The focal point of the artwork is Mollang which is predominantly displayed on the cover. Whilst I am familiar with Mollang from looking online and seeing it every now and again, it’s not popular in Australia. Hopefully, some readers will be able to tell me more about this cute character.
Mollang Hide and Seek measures 25.5cm x 25.5cm approximately.
A colored peach page starts the book. There is text in Korean accompanying this. The coloring book is divided into glossy colored pages featuring the artwork colored in and coloring pages. Only the pages at the start and end of the coloring book proper would be suitable to test your mediums (both have illustrations on reverse though).
The colored artwork is beautiful and inspiring and such a helpful reference when tackling large scenes that are jam packed with detail.
Illustrations are printed on both sides of the off-white, medium quality paper. The line art is dark gray and easy enough to see. However, due to the amount of detail on the pages, it may not be a book for those with a minor visual or motor impairment.
The illustrations do run to the spine of the book. Although the book can be pushed down to some extent, the hardback binding prevents my copy from laying down truly flat. There appear to be some small stitches on the binding but they are very difficult to locate. If you could remove them, they may help to lay the book flatter. If you do not wish to do that, you could color in the ditch by tilting the book with one side up.
The artwork is very simple in this coloring book but there is a lot of it. Each page is packed full of cute little bunnies and double-page scenes. The great thing about these types of books is that you do not have to be skilled at blending and shading to have a great time. You can flat color or color solidly and enjoy the pages. The color reference pictures are a fantastic inclusion making it easy to check individual details that may be overlooked on the detailed pages.
Mollang is, of course, the main feature on each page. The beauty of the bunny is that he doesn’t need to be colored – save perhaps for a bit of blush and paws.
I can imagine that it would take days to complete one of these double page spreads and I may be a little cross-eyed at the end!
Colorists that have a minor visual impairment or motor skill challenges, may find that due to the amount of imagery packed on the page that this is not the book for them.
