Artist Amily Shen takes adult coloring book fans on a magical journey inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
Follow the White Rabbit into this imaginative coloring book inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, featuring intricate pen-and-ink drawings by acclaimed artist Amily Shen. Meet the Cheshire Cat, attend the Mad Hatter’s tea party, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts in this evocative tale that invites you into a strange and beautiful new world of coloring.

With all of the adult coloring books saturating the market it’s hard to find something that really stands on its own and does something more than all of the other coloring books do already. This happens to be the case with Wonderland by Amily Shen. Don’t get me wrong if you’re an Alice and Wonderland fan then be sure to add this one to your collection. Just beware this is artist Amily Shen’s take on the characters. Alice is illustrated with shorter hair and many of the other characters bare slight resemblances but hardly more. It’s whimsical as you would expect and the paper quality is on par with other adult coloring books on the market. The drawings are well done and the lines are crisp. The storyline of Wonderland does seem to follow the beloved adventures from the book quite close so if that’s something you’re into you’re in luck. Overall solid yet average with this one.
