This one reminds me of the Chiquita Banana lady, or Stewie from Family Guy. Ha!

My super short review:

I never know how to review coloring books, but I want to post a review on some retailer sites, so here is my short paragraph on this coloring book. I absolutely LOVE the design and creativity of this coloring book. I am a huge fan of nature coloring books (like National Geographic types), so this was a new concept for me. This coloring book is more than that - it's a very body-positive book, in a subtle way. I've always been proud of my India-blessed straight black hair, but also jealous of people who could curl their hair easily, or could jump in the shower and wash their hair whenever (mine takes hours and hours to dry, so I only wash once a week!). But Pippins has a message for everyone - love your hair no matter the type, just like you should love yourself and embrace your difference. Lovely book to color, and an inspiring read!
