Colouring books for both parents and kids

Sharpen your perfect shade of Tardis blue because we’ve got the colouring book for you (ahem, I mean for your junior Doctor Who fan, of course!).

The colouring book craze seems to have taken over book stands and while intricate patterns, geometric shapes and curling flower and leaf designs dominate, there are a few new titles creeping in that are sure to make both kids and parents happy.


Start with Doctor Who: The Colouring Book. The book includes 45 images of planets, galaxies, villains, heroes, and of course the good Doctor himself, with the famous Tardis. Colour your way out of the time vortex and into the thrilling world of Doctor Who. The book also includes some of the best-loved quotes from the television series.


If wizards and magic is more your scene, ready your pencils for the Harry Potter Colouring Book. Notably, this book is made up of line drawings from the Warner Bros archive, giving Harry Potter fans the chance to revisit the settings and characters they’ve come to love through the incredible book series by J.K. Rowling. Expect drawings of Dobby and baby Norbert, Quidditch games and the unforgettable final battle between Harry and Lord Voldemort.


You have to wonder where the colouring book craze will end – with books for hipsters, Alice fans, mystery-loving Sherlock-wannabes and even one for meme star, Grumpy Cat (which urges you to colour outside the lines!), I suspect we’ll be colouring for quite some time yet.

Find Doctor Who: The Colouring Book online at Book Depository, which delivers free of charge to Australia.
