Coloring Books – New Releases – March 2021

This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all coloring books being released. Bear in mind, that there are hundreds and hundreds of books being released every month. I cannot possibly keep up with all of them!

This list of new releases is only books that have taken my fancy, and that I think that you may like as well. Due to the high cost of postage for most readers, this list will usually not include International releases.

Please also bear in mind that different countries often have different publication dates. Something may be released in the US earlier than in the UK or vice versa.

If you know of a new release that you think I may be interested in, leave a comment in the area below

let’s go …

Luna Coloring Book

The wait is almost over for Maria Trolle fans with the English edition of  Luna being released this month.    The coloring book is being published by Maria’s usual US publisher, Gibbs Smith who always replicates the Swedish edition as to paper and cover.     This hardback coloring book promises “Enjoy a moonlit walk through a garden full of gorgeous flowers, discover fabulous plant treasures in a dense forest, and tiptoe around fairy tales at every corner. Gather your thoughts and calm your mind by coloring all of the beautiful plants and animals in Luna. A register of plants, birds, and butterflies is found in the back of the book.”  I imagine because of the moonlit theme that there will be many pages with black backgrounds already pre-done.  I have not peeked at Luna to see if that is true or not. I want to have a surprise when I see it 🙂

Pages: 88

Fragile World Coloring Book

The UK edition of Fragile World Coloring Book was released a month ago and now the US gets to enjoy this beautiful work (personally I think it is Kerby’s best book so far).    Fragile World has a theme of endangered animals and the worlds that they live in.   At the back of the book, there is a legend that sets out the identity of the animals and why they were included in the book.    This book promises “exploring fifty-six endangered, vulnerable, and threatened animals and landscapes—from the Tapanuli orangutan to the hawksbill turtle, from Philippine bat caves to the Baltic Sea.”  The US edition is published by Plume.   You can see my review of the UK edition here.

About the author


I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
