The happiest time of the year is also the creepiest. Winter has a darker and richer lore than Halloween, and for centuries people have feared creatures from ancient legends born of this time of year. Tales such as giant hairy monsters who live in the mountains and will snatch you up and eat you were used to ensure children didn’t wander off in the snow and become lost. These were indeed just stories . . . or were they…?
This festive feast of fear contains 40 originally hand drawn and inked illustrations from a variety of traditional beliefs and legends from around the world. Bringing together British, North American, Nordic, Icelandic, and Germanic folklore, Mister Sam Shearon’s Creepy Christmas includes characters such as Krampus, Santa Claws, Rabid Rudolph, the Grimace Tree, the Wendigo, Snow Bear, Yule Cat, the Abominable Snowman, and many more, ready for you to bring to colorful life with fearsome festive cheer. And that’s not all. Each page is accompanied with a poem—a guide to these creepy creatures from the season of ice and snow!
This Christmas creepy coloring book is so unique, and the art is amazing. We are all huge horror fans in our house, especially my husband and boys, so we have been fighting over who gets to color which pages. There are 40 pages of creepy from all different lore from all over the world. Some we recognized and some we had never heard of. Each page has a poem that tells the story for the creepy on that page. The coloring pages are extremely detailed, and you can add your own touech by using non traditional colors. This coloring book is a blast to color.
