Review: Cat Querkles - Thomas Pavitte

From the creator of the 1000 Dot-to-Dot series comes Cat Querkles, putting an exciting new twist on the classic colour-by-number images that we loved as children. At first, you see nothing but a baffling tangle of circles, but hidden within each puzzle is a whiskery face waiting to be revealed!

Featuring a menagerie of adorable felines from roaring lions to loopy long-hairs, Cat Querkles provides hours of creative colouring fun for artistic minds of all ages. Choose a dramatic colour scheme to make your Querkle truly unique, discover what's hidden in each puzzle, and create a striking kitty portrait that you can easily remove and display.

This is my second Querkles colouring book and I love it just as much as the first, they're colour by numbers books unlike anything else you've come across before! The images are made up of hundreds of interlocking circles of various sizes which makes it practically impossible to tell what the image is going to be before you start colouring it in. You can cheat and look at the black and grey thumbnail images at the back of the book if you want to but I find it more fun to watch the image gradually appear as I colour.

This book contains 20 different images and as you can probably tell by the title of this book they're all of cats. The pages are large, A3 in size, and the paper used is good quality and fairly thick card. Each image is on a separate piece of paper and I've been using my sharpie pens to colour them in without any problem with bleed through so that should give you an idea of the quality. If you like to display your pictures after you've finished them then you'll find they have a perforated edge which makes it really easy to remove them from the book too.

Each image is designed to be filled in using 5 different colours. You can use different shades of the same colour or 5 contrasting colours but you'll need to work from dark to light with #1 being the darkest and #5 being the lightest. I find it easiest to fill in one colour at a time until the picture is complete.

These pictures show progress from start to finish as you add each layer of colour:

and here are a few more completed designs in various colour combinations:

I really do love these books and hope the artist brings out more animal versions in the future (he does have a couple of books with iconic people but I'm not really interested in those ones).

Note to self, cheap felt tip pens are not as good as Sharpies *duh* LOL
