Scholastic expanded their adult coloring book series with the Harry Potter Magical Places & Characters Coloring Book. As the title infers, this book focuses on the locations Harry visited and the people he met during his time in the series.
Multiple artists designed the pages, and the art is on either one page or two, depending on the design. When you open this book you will see places like the Hogwarts castle and the Dursley's home at #4 Privet Drive. As for the characters, it is too soon to know what we will see since it hasn't been published yet but I am guessing we will see characters like the Malfoy family, Dumbledore, McGonagall, Snape, Hagrid, and other people important to Harry. Perhaps even Dobby?
The back of the book contains color images of some of the art that you can color. This is very helpful to those of you who want to faithfully color a page but aren't sure how. I love these pictures because they are beautiful to look at.
Oh, one more thing. I have seen two different covers for this book. One is red, and one is purple. The purple cover was the working cover - it evens says "COVER NOT FINAL" on it - while the red one is the official cover. In other words, Scholastic considered using the purple one but ended up using the red one. Here is what the purple cover looks like, just so you know what you are looking at. When you buy this book it will have the red cover, regardless of what it looked like when you bought it.
There are two types of product links on this page:
- Picture Link - If you can click on a picture it will take you directly to that item on a site like Amazon or Etsy. It is possible that the item is no longer available for sale from the seller I have linked the picture to, which is why I created the second type of link.
- Site Link - When you click on a link to an online store, such as Amazon, eBay, or Etsy, it will take you to that site so you can compare prices for the item seen in the picture. Or, if you are looking at a costume then you might see items similar to the one seen in the picture so you choose the one you like best.
Do you live outside the United States?
Although some items on Amazon can be shipped world wide, you will probably have the best luck with eBay and Etsy. Click here to see how to know if an item from those three sites can be shipped outside the U.S.A., as well as how you can buy items found and have them shipped to you even if the store you buy from doesn't ship to your country.(Clicking this will open a new window so you won't lose the page you are currently on.)
Prevent Bleeding Onto The Back Of A Page...
As I researched the Harry Potter coloring books I came across someone who experimented with various pens and pencils to find out which ones bled through to the back of a page (where there is another image to be colored), and which did not. Here are the results of that testing:
Safe To Use (no ink bleeding)
India ink pens
Avoid (causes ink bleeding)
Alcohol based markers
Water based markers
