The first thing I should mention is the wicked cover! It's matte black with striking orange lettering, and a glossy tiger which runs right round to the back.
The book is marketed as 'An extreme colouring and search challenge', so in amongst all the chaos there are 'Where's Wally?'-esque hidden items for you to find if you can. At the back of the book are the answers, just in case you're tearing your hair out to find a miniature Alien Elvis or a teeny Ming vase!
The paper quality is fairly thick and smooth, with a bright white finish. Triplus and Stabilo markers are fine to use, but I think pencils give the best effects in this book with their blending capabilities. Here's my finished page. I used Faber Castell art grip pencils for the main part of the bird and its tail feathers, and Triplus for the little creatures. I can't wait for Kerby's future books, and being a lover of quirkiness his style is probably my favourite to colour, despite the breathtaking beauty of Secret Garden.
