publishes April 19th, 2022

Okay, it is a little weird to give a review of a coloring book that you can’t print out. This was provided to me at no cost by NetGalley, and at no point during my review process did I color any of these pages. I think the best way to do this review is going to be to list all of the types of coloring pages in this book, and add my notes if I have any.
