If the Cat Fits....

When I first saw mention of this book I literally pounced on the computer screen. Why? It is in the same style as The Wallpaper Book, (which I have coloured right through and loved), it's about cats and it has stickers!

So what we have here are lots of different scenes, in varied locations, in which the background is to be coloured in and the foreground has inserted coloured photos. 
The 200 stickers of cats and objects can be placed wherever you want to, in the images.
All images are on double page spreads with a little of the image lost to the spine, but it's not too bad. The scenes are interesting and varied as you can see in the video above. I'm particularly looking forward to the outdoor scenes. Incidentally there is no image index.

You will have to use water-based pens as alcohol based pens will bleed through the paper. Pencils should be fine as there feels to be a bit of tooth to the pages. I'll report back further when I've coloured the first image.
The stickers are delightful, showing several different breeds of cats and lots of enticing object like bird feathers and toys. Each sticker has a white border so I'll be trimming that off before I place them in the image as I don't want a lot of white showing.

The dog's book should follow a similar format and seems to have different backgrounds but I have seen only an image or two.
