A dazzlingly beautiful coloring book for all ages, The Time Garden will sweep you away into a whimsical cuckoo clock-inspired world, created in intricate pen and ink by the internationally best-selling Korean artist Daria Song. Journey through the doors of a mysterious cuckoo clock into its inky innerworkings to discover a magical land of clock gears, rooftops, starry skies, and giant flying owls--all ready for you to customize with whatever colors you can dream up. Cuckoo . . . cuckoo . . . cuckoo . . . When the clock strikes midnight, you'll wonder, was it all a dream? The Time Garden features extra-thick craft paper, ideal for non bleed-through coloring, and the jacketed cover with flaps is removable and colorable. Special gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine and a To/From page make it perfect for gifting to adults and kids alike. Then, explore the magical world outside the clock through the eyes of a fairy in the sequel, The Time Chamber: A Magical Story and Coloring Book!

This is the second coloring book that I have from Daria Song. “The Time Garden” actually takes place prior to “The Time Chamber”. I think the pictures are beautiful. I love how the whole coloring book tells a story. I think the book is well made with great paper. The pages are front and back so there may be a bit of difficulty if you are trying to color with pens or markers. My biggest complaint is it is a bit difficult to get the book to lie flat. The binding is well done but it makes it hard to lie felt. This doesn’t stop one from coloring this beautiful book. I am really going to have to start coloring more.
