About the Author
Sam Taplin grew up in a beautiful valley in Yorkshire, where he dreamed of being a writer, and after three years reading other people's books at university he started writing his own for Usborne. He's been doing it ever since. When he's not writing about lonely rabbits or inquisitive bears, he likes doing card tricks, writing songs and playing long games of chess by the fire.

There are three different types of activity in the book - dot-to-dots, mazes and 'doodle' activities. These are presented as highly colourful, exciting and well-themed visuals which my son finds mesmerising! Almost all the activities are over a double page spread filling the whole page, with a minimum of instructions. Themes include vehicles, cupcakes, monsters, pirates, clothing and space. I would say that there are more of the traditionally male themes covered, but I would still definitely buy this for a girl.
The two pens provided did not last long but white board markers are easily bought and work just as well. If you were going to buy this book to entertain a child on a trip, it would be worth getting a few spare pens before you go! The way in which the pens are glued to the front of the book is its main down side. I ended up tearing a hole in the cover trying to get the pens free.
I know people keep complaining about the markers staining the book, there is an easy solution! Use Crayola's Dry Erase Crayons or pencils instead! That's what I've done, and the crayon simply rubs of with a swip of a wet wipe/ baby wipe!
The book is a BIG HIT in our house! Definitely worth the money :)
