Climb up to the moon with Sarah Yoon’s fold-out illustration. Colour an amazing tower, all the way from your house down on the ground, past dragons, witches, space ports and flying elephants, to reach the moon at the very top. Sarah Yoon's imaginative scenes are the compiled product of dreams and visual thoughts. Grab your pens and let’s get going. Can you climb all the way to the Moon...?

Colouring books seem to be all the craze at the moment, from traditional editions for kids, more intricate ones for adults and even downloadable apps that let you colour on your tablet devices.

To the Moon is a fun, novel entry into the market and is suitable for both children and adults. It claims to be the world's tallest colouring book, and at 15 ft in height it probably is.

The book comes folded, and you unfold it as you colour from the bottom (earth) to the top (the moon). When you open the book you are confronted with your first colouring panel, when you've completed that simply unfold it and the next two panels are available to colour. Finish those and unfold to revel the next two panels. Each time you unfold the panels the previous ones fall on top of the ones before - so you never have a large amount of pages trailing all over the floor. And when you've finished the entire book folds out into one long poster - which can easily be refolded up again.

Visit space ports, flying elephants, castles in the sky, shark tanks, acrobatic sheep, an airbourne circus, gumball machines, fire-breathing dragons, satellites and, finally, the Moon. This is a wonderful book that you can colour in with your children on many a rainy weekend.
