Designed around a fanciful story, this coloring book turns into a beautiful picture book once its pages are completed.

One night, Lulu the cow has a dream in which she sees a handsome bull with a heart branded on his rump. “Come to me,” he says to her as she wakes up. Dubbing the bull “Mr. Heart,” the smitten Lulu and her macaw companion, the busybody Nina, set out together on a romantic journey to find him.

They visit a variety of curious places along the way: “Hide-n-seek Town,” where the residents are all shy and hesitant to be seen; “Topsy-Turvy Town,” where things are upside-down, and what’s usually small is big and vice versa; the “Jet Black Sea,” where the ink of a giant octopus has turned everything black; “Copycat Town,” where right mirrors left; “Delicious Land,” where everything looks like yummy desserts; and so forth. Everywhere they go, they delight the residents in some way and make many new friends, but Mr. Heart remains nowhere to be seen. Then, with Lulu’s body now resplendent with the gifts she’s received from her friends along the way, the great big Sun comes out to light up “Sky Town.” As Lulu and Nina make their way through town guided by the sunshine, they see in the distance a bull with a heart branded on its rump. Could it be Mr. Heart?

Besides coloring the pages according to their own tastes, readers can add their own drawings and dialogues to the white spaces as well as enjoy the various puzzle games dispersed throughout the pages?hidden pictures, mazes, find the mistakes, and more.
