Secret Garden was Johanna Basford’s first book and it takes the form of an inky treasure hunt. The idea is to look for the creatures as you colour the pages. It is full of designs with flowers and leaves, some with lots of detail and some with less and some of the pages have spaces so that you can draw parts in yourself. There are lovely garden scenes as well as more patterned pictures as well. Some are double-paged spreads that you can really get lost in and some have small designs to enjoy.
