OUTSIDE THE LINES

Keep stylish and creative in 2011 with the Charley Harper 2011 Coloring Calendar. It includes the illustrator's iconic animal images and 12 black-and-white pages that you can color yourself.

Harper was well-regarded for his "minimal realism" style. He described it as: "When I look at a wildlife or nature subject, I don't see the feathers in the wings, I just count the wings. I see exciting shapes, color combinations, patterns, textures, fascinating behavior and endless possibilities for making interesting pictures."

This style makes it easy for kids of all ages to pick up their pens, pencils, paints or crayons and add their touch to the color blocks.

Our reviewer put it this way:

"I like the coloring calendar. A lot! It would be better for someone a little older, maybe 10 and up, because there are a lot of shapes and some are pretty small. The nice part is that you don't really have to stay in the lines. There is no right way to do it, so even if you scribble over a bunch of shapes, it still looks pretty cool."

It is 8 1/2 -inches wide, 12-inches tall and 1/8 -inch thick.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"I cried thrice during 'Toy Story 3'! Thrice! When those toys hold hands as they slide down into this fire pit of doom? I haven't been as moved by an expression of mortality in a long, long time."
