A magic painting book like you’ve never seen before, with wonderful vibrant colours. Includes 16 beautiful, full-page black and white illustrations, from butterflies and birds to a grand castle and a jungle of tigers, which are transformed into a rainbow of colours when children carefully paint water onto the pictures. There's a flap to place behind the painting to stop paint seeping through to the next page and ensure perfect results.

“jungle magic painting book”
This book is fantastic! I have been looking for paint with water books for years and rarely find any. The colors are vibrant and as I paint with my daughter I am thinking I want a book for myself! This is far more relaxing that getting the right markers/pencils for those tiny little lines in adult coloring books, all you need is a brush and water. Wonderful product, I will definitely be ordering more and this may be my new go to birthday gifts for my kids’s friends!
