Awesome Town by Melissa Averinos is a book of 16 fun and quirky themed poster designs on 8 pull-out posters (printed front and back). The pages are perforated and you will need to detach the poster to colour it in. The paper is thick with a bit of a tooth (texture) to it so if you use pencils to colour either you will get some white background showing through or need to blend more than usual. Markers should work well, although if you use alcohol markers be sure you don’t mind losing the design on the reverse. The ink is dark black and on some the lines are thick to suit the graphic poster style. One of the posters (an owls design) is grayscale with a black background. Each poster measures 77cm (30″) x 49cm (19″). One side of each poster is fully illustrated, the other side has more of a decorative border to enable you to create your own drawings or add lettering if you so wish.

The designs range from landscapes, cats, suns, mermaids, clouds and owls. It is a nice book and a lovely concept. This would be a great book to do as a family around a table as each poster is large enough that everyone can colour at once and as they are patterns it doesn’t matter so much if you are colouring upside down. I previously reviewed Bohemian Adventures by Valori Wells which is another poster book in the same series and of the two I prefer this one by far. The designs are indeed “fun and quirky” and would appeal to young children and these would look great in bright colours and hung on the wall. I intend to give this book to my young niece to take to school as I feel the children will love to colour these designs. They would look even better with glitter and possibly other decorations added and I think they will love it.

I was kindly sent a copy from the distributor, however all thoughts and comments expressed are my own honest opinion.
