Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Color in Classics

Last Updated on December 29, 2017 by ellen

I’ve always loved fairy tales and used to spend hours daydreaming about princesses in castles and fairies in the woods. I loved Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel but Little Red Cap and Hansel and Gretel were well-loved stories too. When the kids got older, I read them my favorite fairy tales before bed. As they outgrew bedtime stories, I Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Color in Classicsmissed my favorite stories. With Color in Classics coloring books for adults, I have been enjoying coloring scenes from my favorites stories.

Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Color in Classics

Fans of Grimm and Once Upon a Time will delight in Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Color in Classics($14.99; ISBN: 978-1-62686-558-7; 144 pages). The red of the hood, the green of the frog, the gold of the straw…Will you color in classic style, or create new, modern palettes for each fairy tale? The choice is yours in Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Color in Classics. Relieve stress, relax, and meditate as you fill in the patterns and lines of 70 images to build a beautiful book of art. Experienced colorists newbies alike will enjoy coloring in the drawings inspired by the stories of Cinderella, Little Red Cap, the Frog Prince, Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, and more. Enchanting scenes await your creative mind!

I really enjoyed the coloring pages in this coloring book. Each spread includes a blank sheet on the left with a drawing prompt like “Design your own bouquet of flowers” and a coloring page on the right. This makes it perfect for those that prefer to draw free form as well as those who prefer to color in existing pages. The sheets have lots of detail but are easy enough for those who don’t consider themselves to be artistic to complete. There really is something for everyone.

Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Color in Classics contains 70 different drawings to color in plus pages for making your own drawings. Other titles in the series contain Alice in Wonderland and Sherlock Holmes. I’ll be sharing my thoughts with you on Sherlock Holmes in the future so make sure you check back.

  1. I enjoyed fairy tales as a kid and am glad to see them back again. The coloring book form gives a person lots of time to ponder the story. Thanks for the pencil suggestions as well, I never know what to buy.

  2. I love fairy tales too and wish I could read them like the actors and actresses do. This morning I picked up from the mail, a 3 CD set of Grimm’s Fairy Tales that I won and can’t wait to play them in the car. Glad I’m not the only older woman who still loves them! Maybe I can practice and get better at tale-telling in my most dramatic voice! This coloring book would be fun to use at home as I listen to my lovely CDs. Note to self: get some pretty colored pencils!!

  3. What a fun coloring book. I LOVE this new trend of adult coloring books. They’re so fun and relaxing!
