The subtitle of this book by Eliza Todd is “A Coloring Book That Thinks You’re Pretty Darn Cool.” (Spoiler alert: the feeling is reciprocated.) Yes, let’s get one thing out of the way first, I’m 45-50 years older than the target market for this book. I don’t care, not only because I have no shame, but also because adult coloring books are actually a thing too.
But the problem with “adult coloring books” is that they strain for credibility. They’re serious. They’re complex. Coloring them makes me feel like I have a second job. A job that I’m not good at. I don’t need that stress and pressure!
Todd’s book is simply delightful. It’s affirming, friendly, and cute. And as you focus (just enough) on coloring it, you discover all sorts of delightful and endearing touches. Before you know it you’re smiling, and if you’re not careful, having fun.
You can get your copy from Amazon for a very reasonable price. Welcome to the world of adulting like you don’t give a damn.
