My Beastly Book of Tangled Tinsel: 140 Ways to Doodle, Scribble, Color and DrawFeatured
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.
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.
