November is going to be a busy month with a lot of new coloring book releases. All our lovely artists and publishers will be trying to tempt us to do some spending for the holiday season.
This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all coloring books being released. Bear in mind, that there are hundreds and hundreds of books being released every month. I cannot possibly keep up with all of them!
This list of new releases is only books that have taken my fancy, and that I think that you may like as well. Due to the high cost of postage for most readers, this list will usually not include International releases.
Many of these books I will be reviewing as part of my coloring book reviews. Those books will marked with an ** after the title.
Please also bear in mind that different countries often have different publication dates. Something may be released in the US earlier than in the UK or vice versa.
If you know of a new release that you think I may be interested in leave a comment in the comments area below.

Creative Haven Fanciful Foxes Coloring Book
Those folks at Creative Haven have been very busy for November. They are releasing quite a few titles this month. The one that caught my eye is Fanciful Foxes by one of my favorite coloring book artists, Marjorie Sarnat. If you are familiar with Marjorie’s work it usually consists of a particular animal as a t heme which are then richly decorated with designs for you to color. The theme for this book, is of course, foxes. I haven’t see that many foxes in coloring books and it is nice to see this little animal getting a whole book dedicated to them for colorists to enjoy. I quite like foxes 🙂

I am totally in love with the cute animals inside this book (there are 22 in total). On the “look inside” there’s a bunny! I think everyone knows that if there is a chance of a bunny being in a book I’ll want it 🙂 I hope Santa is listening! The book is also educational. At the end of the book is a map and information on where all those cute and cuddly critters can be found throughout the world.
