Review

This book contains 32 pages of clean white high-quality paper. All of the art and puzzles are black and white, and appear to be brand-new for this series. Typesetting and layout is high quality. Nearly all the characters from the film appear here, in suitably cartoony art.

There's a good number of puzzle pages in here, only about a quarter of the pages are simple "color me" pages. There's crosswords, spot-the-difference, mazes, quite a few code puzzles and word puzzles, plus a few join-the-dots. All the answers for the word puzzles are given in the back, naturally.

In General...

This is a clear, well-constructed coloring/activity puzzle book. I found this copy in the UK for 3 pounds. Strangely, Amazon doesn't seem to list this separate book among their products for the U.S. market. This only seems to be available as part of the Spider-Man 3: Coloring and Activity Book 3-in-1 book.

Overall Rating...

Well constructed, a clean and finished-looking book. It's not cheap, and it's not huge, but I'm going to give this a slightly above-average rating just because it's notably higher quality than most of the quick make-a-buck movie tie-in coloring books that often hit the stores.
