Kokeshi dolls have much of the adorable appeal and charm of the ubiquitous Hello Kitty, but with much more extensive wardrobe. This exotic coloring book features black-outlined drawing of Kokeshi (traditional Japanese wooden dolls), each with its own distinctive costume, signature color, and personal haiku. Kids are invited to color in Kimonos, sashes, fans, and other accessories, accenting their masterpieces with any of 75 stickers. Each spread has one doll with a specific personality trait and favorite color. The yellow spread is Kukiko, whose signature trait, expressed by an accompanying haiku, is joy, and the blue spread introduces Oki, who embodies creativity.
It's a high-style book with an affordable price designed to provide hours of absorbing creativity and a dash of cultural flair.
Jessica Secheret was born in a small French town on a spring day in 1978. As a child, felt pens, colored pencils, paint and brushes were her constant companions. When Jessica had finished "decorating" every wall in her family's house, her parents realized that art school should be their daughter's next venue. Ms. Secheret then studied furniture design at Paris's Ecole Boulle and went on to stints in architecture firms. Eventually she hung up her ruler and compass, and decided to become an illustrator.
