What is a "coloring storybook"? It's a coloring book, a storybook, and more! You can color just the pages you want, and enjoy it like any fine coloring book. Or finish them all and create a wonderful storybook, a keepsake all your own, or one to lovingly share with children and grandchildren. Imagine their excitement and delight -- and yours too! -- when you read to them from a book you helped illustrate yourself! It's a gift your loved ones can treasure forever, a true family heirloom.

 This coloring storybook from Skyhook Press, based on an authentic legend, reveals the origin of the term "baker?s dozen" and tells how Saint Nicholas taught a baker to be generous.

 *************Please note: This "grayscale coloring book" (or ?greyscale colouring book?) has pictures already shaded in gray, calling for a different kind of coloring. But that doesn't make it harder -- in fact, it makes it easier to get stunning results! For tips, search online for "grayscale coloring."



 This coloring book is adapted from the children's picture book "The Baker's Dozen: A Saint Nicholas Tale," retold by Aaron Shepard and illustrated by Wendy Edelson. The book was published in 1995 by Atheneum Books for Young Children, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, and was honored as an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists and a Trumpet Book Club Selection. It is still available, in a new edition from Skyhook Press with bonus cookie recipe and pattern.


 Wendy Edelson has applied her award-winning skills to a wide range of illustration projects, including picture books, pet portraits, posters, and puzzles. Among her clients have been Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo, the Seattle Aquarium, Pacific Northwest Ballet, the U.S. Postal Service, Cricket Magazine, McGraw-Hill Education, and the American Library Association. More recent projects have included producing coloring pages for Etsy and illustrating Quackling, another retelling of Aaron's. The pictures in this coloring book were converted to grayscale by Skyhook Press from Wendy's original watercolor illustrations.


 Aaron Shepard is the award-winning author of many children's books from publishers large and small. Once a professional storyteller, Aaron specializes in lively retellings of folktales and other traditional literature, which have won him honors from the American Library Association, the New York Public Library, the Bank Street College of Education, the National Council for the Social Studies, and the American Folklore Society. After first hearing the legend of the baker's dozen from storyteller Sheila Dailey, Aaron retold the story himself with the help of texts dating as far back as 1896.
