The real Follymops is a Cavalier King Charles spaniel who lives in a restored 17th century hunting lodge in the south of France. Mini-Follymops, your tour guide in this coloring book, lives in a miniature chateau built by Sausalito artist Suze Perry-Hinkle, inspired by the actual Chateau Bidaine. The images of this dollhouse miniature are full of fantastic details that will delight miniature-lovers, dollhouse enthusiasts, Cavalier King Charles spaniel fans, and artists both young and young-at-heart. The 39 sketches-to-color in this book are made from photographs of the miniature building, and retain some of the original shading and textures. The sketches have the detail that advanced colorers are looking for, with the added advantage of being very forgiving for those who are equally enthusiastic but less skilled. The shading already in the sketches comes through when you use colored pencils, so you can just apply color, or add more shading if you're in the mood. Perfect for low-tech "de-stressing," with a beautiful result from a variety of skill levels. Captions in this "coloring storybook" show Follymops and her friends around the estate, telling a little bit about the quirky owners as well as indulging mini-Follymops' imagination. The result is an enchanting coloring experience for children and adults alike. We recommend this book for ages 8 and up, but we have found detail-oriented 6 and 7-year-olds enjoying this book when they thought no one was looking. This is a revision of the previously published "Le Chateau Bidaine" (bilingual English/French, also available on Amazon). Some of the sketches here have been simplified for easier coloring, and this story is told through Follymops' eyes. Please also see Volume 2 in this series, the "Collectors' color edition," printed on upgraded paper stock with full color illustrations displayed alongside the ones to color.

About Suze Perry-Hinkle

Suze Perry-Hinkle lives high on a hill in northern California, overlooking the San Francisco Bay. She loves everything French, but instead of moving to France to live in a quaint French village she has created more than 30 miniature buildings over the past decade, which replicate the look of old Paris and are currently crowding her out of her home. But she can't stop, she's more
