About this product
- DescriptionThis is Suze Perry-Hinkle's original bilingual French/English coloring book, created from photographs of her stunning dollhouse miniature, the Chateau Bidaine. The three Chateau books feature miniature Cavalier King Charles spaniel dolls around the estate. This book gives the viewer a tour of the miniature building in both French and English, telling about the quirky owners and the dogs who inhabit the actual Chateau, a restored 17th century hunting lodge in Aix-en-Provence, France. The images in this book are full of fantastic details that will delight Francophiles, miniature-lovers, dollhouse enthusiasts, Cavalier King Charles spaniel fans, and artists both young and young-at-heart. The 43 sketches-to-color in this book are made from photographs of the miniature building, and retain some of the original shading and textures. The sketches have the detail that advanced colorers are looking for, with the added advantage of being very forgiving for those who are equally enthusiastic but less skilled. The shading already in the sketches comes through when you use colored pencils, so you can just apply color, or add more shading if you're in the mood. Perfect for low-tech de-stressing, with a beautiful result from a variety of skill levels. The result is an enchanting coloring experience for children and adults alike. We recommend this book for ages 8 and up, but we have found detail-oriented 6 and 7-year-olds enjoying this book when they thought one was looking. Printing is single-sided to help avoid bleed-through. The other two Chateau books are part of our Dollhouse Dogs series: Follymops and the French Chateau Volumes I and II. These are in English only. The dog on the cover, and the way the story is written, make them more accessible to a younger audience. Search keyword Follymops to see all the books.
