Rated: 5 stars *****
Scavenger Art is a terrific activity book for ages 6-12. It really does cater for all of this vast age range in a fun, exploratory way that fits art and questions together in challenges.
This is a little late in the blog tour due to unforeseen home technicalities that could not be left.
Please do go on your own hunt and scroll down to the blurb, review, a bit about the author and media links and also discover buy links within this too.
Thanks to Lexi Rees for the postcard.

Scavenger Art is a beautiful book. The cover is so much fun and whatsmore is that this is an activity book, which is perfect for a Christmas present or a gift at any time of year to keep children occupied. Inside is beautifully illustrated on one side of the page and on the opposite side is a place where to be creative yourself. There are challenges to complete, questions to answer, items to draw.
