Notable: Sharpen your crayons


Sharpen your crayons

These days there's a coloring book for almost any interest. Here are three to consider for holiday shopping.

404 Not Found: A Coloring Book by the Oatmeal (Andres McMeel) tells the wildly imaginative story of a missing robot. If you're familiar with this cartoonist, you know some of his work is adult-only, but this is cool for kids, if your kids are a little weird.

Harry Potter: Winter at Hogwarts (Candlewick Press), based on J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World, is a box set with a coloring book of scenes from the movies, a build-it-yourself model of a Firebolt broom and 48 colorable gift tags.

The Sibley Birds: Coloring Field Journal (Alfred A. Knopf) by Cecilia Lehar is built for birders, with line drawings of dozens of bird species plus a key of watercolors by artist and ornithologist David Allen Sibley.
