The Usborne Christmas Pocket Doodling and Colouring Book

I've never bought a doodling book before, but 7-year-old Harry spotted this in a shop and fancied it so we bought it and it's wonderful. So wonderful that I've actually considered buying a second one for myself (not that I'm a control freak or anything, but I just don't think Harry's thumbprint penguins will meet my high standards...).

There are baubles and Christmas trees to decorate, the aforementioned penguins to draw and lots lots more. (And some of the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous - seems a shame to doodle on them.) (Maybe I am a control freak...)

It's suitable for different ability levels too, so even 2-year-old Joe could do a bit of colouring while Harry (and, um, me) are more likely to focus on the bits that require a bit more imagination.

The back cover warns 'this book could become very, very addictive' and I can totally imagine that could be true. A great one for Christmas stockings.
