The Time Chamber by Daria Song

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: October 13, 2015
Number of pages: 80

Korean artist Daria Song’s sequel to The Time Garden takes readers on a visual journey into a magical nighttime world seen through the eyes of a fairy.

This second book in the bestselling Time coloring series features the voyage of a fairy who, when the cuckoo clock chimes midnight, enters the human world. To the tiny fairy, everything seems enormous and magical, from the curtains to the chandelier to a mystical rowboat that takes her further into an inky adventure. With her she packs her favorite items, which colorers can find throughout the book’s pages: an owl-feathered pen, a star-scented spray, a time tape measure…even the key to the time chamber itself!

Filled with the imaginative, intricately detailed illustrations Song’s readers have come to love, The Time Chamber presents a view of our world made new—and ready for coloring.

The Time Chamber features extra-thick craft paper, ideal for non bleed-through coloring, and the jacketed cover with flaps is removable and colorable. Special gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine and a To/From page make it perfect for gifting to adults and kids alike.

What did I think of this book:
This is the sequel to the Time Garden which is a fun coloring book that I am currently working on. I like how the time theme continues on in this book from the first one. This time we follow a fairy on her journey. Again Daria has done a great job with the details of this book and the added bonus of another story. It is fun that you get to color your own story book. Like the first book this pages are double sided with pictures and the paper is nice and thick so you can use whatever medium you choose. Myself I love to use colored pencils. I am looking forward to more books by Daria Song. Another must have in your collection.
