As fans of Lizzie's work will know, her style is very 'all over the place' at first glance (it's called psychogeography) and the illustrations only really come together when colour is added, creating a fabulous finished piece of art. This totally unique and distinctive drawing technique continues in The Magical Christmas, making it a perfect companion book to sit side-by-side with its predecessor. So far, it's the best Christmas-themed colouring book I've seen by a mile, especially if you like a modern spin on the traditional. So get into the Yuletide spirit and take a look inside!
The book is the same shape, size and format as the first, it's sparsely coloured cover scattered with red and gold metallic accents. It has another treasure hunt for you to complete if you wish, and a jolly 'Test Page' at the back for you to experiement with colour palettes and materials.
Overall, this is definitely not a book you want to miss out on! Here's my finished picture of a Victorian Toy Shop window,
