Welcome to the Christmas Market by Ruth Russell


Published by Usborne, 2016.

This is a beautifully detailed book to fold out and colour in. When folded out completely, it’s easily a metre long. That’s a lot of colouring fun! It’ll either keep one avid artist busy for most of the Christmas holidays or several members of the same family could all sit around the table and colour in together.

The scene is a Christmas market and it has stalls brimming with gifts, toys and tasty festive treats. There’s a huge Christmas tree and an ice skating rink. Choristers sing carols outside the church and two cheerful snowmen stand surrounded by presents. You’ll even spot Santa’s sleigh and Rudolph, but there’s no sign of the big man himself.

A sheet of over a hundred tiny rub-down transfers are included with the book in case you want a break from the colouring or just want to add a different artistic effect.

This would make a lovely Christmas gift for both children and adults – personally, I can’t wait to get my felt tips out and start colouring!
