Dune is possibly the worst colouring book I've ever reviewed, not because it's badly done but because it has no freaking business being a colouring book!
This is Hollywood ignorance at it's finest, a respected science fiction novel, Dune was sold as the next Star Wars when it's just too complicated and dark to be popular for children.
The best comparision I can make is it's like seeing a Watchmen colouring book at Target.
This page is one of the reasons I had trouble with the movie itself, waaaaaay too much dialouge setting up the movie. I mean, when has a colouring book ever had this much to say?
"Can I borrow your white crayon Sally? I need to make Puss"
Here's the darkness I told you about, who in hell thought it was a good idea to have the "boil picking scene" in a colouring book? The Baron is not a character that should have been marketed to children, he's just gross and not in a "Garbage Pail Kids" kind of way more of a "Gee, I hope he doesn't sit next to me on the bus" thing.
In the common sense department, we're somehow spared an image of Sting in that stupid metal G String. Although, this piece advertises several activity books in this series so I'm gonna go ahead and assume you get to connect the dots on his crotch somewhere....
Another winning picture for children to colour.
Sting's over acting shines in this book, anyway, he gets stabbed and the good guys win, I think. Everybody still looks unhappy and drab, the kid who coloured this would be out of all earth tones and red by the end.
Normally I give my kids the used books but in this case, this one will hit the recycle bin.
