Featuring more than 140 fantastically festive scenarios, My Beastly Book of Tangled Tinsel will provide budding young artists with hours of holiday fun. This zany take on Christmas will have kids coming up with a new suit for Santa, decorating personalized gift tags, deciding what would happen if Santa’s sleigh were to be drawn by hippos instead of reindeer, and imagining the best presents they can come up with — and the worst!

The wide variety of activities — from drawing and coloring to cut–outs and more — will help kids build confidence in their artistic skills and inspire their minds. Instructions are clear and concise but still give kids plenty of chance to make use of their active imaginations. Illustrator Christine Roussey’s loose, fantastical style sets up each impish scenario perfectly and encourages kids to respond to each page in a spontaneous and natural way.

Illustrator Christine Roussey's scribbly, accessible style welcomes even the smallest child to doodle within these pages.

My Beastly Book of Tangled Tinsel has the potential to keep a child busy for hours while they engage in a myriad of naughty and nice activities. The nicer options invite kids to draw Santa's father, color the outfits for a reindeer fashion show, draw a motorcycle for Santa, and draw their own face on an elf's body. The naughty and giggle-worthy suggestions include drawing the lovechild of a reindeer and snowman (antlers and a carrot nose, perhaps?), or besieging an off-pitch children's choir with rotten tomatoes and pears.

Like all the other "My Beastly Books," kids are sure to get a kick out of expressing themselves in such a free-style, color-outside-the-lines format. Within these pages, kids aren't expected to create serious art. Here, the expectations are lifted. They are free to be themselves.
