Overview

Succumb to the dark magic of this adult coloring book by artist Amy Kollar Anderson and author Rob E. Boley.

THAT NAUGHTY PIPE: A SCARY TALE OF THE PIED PIPER & GREMLINS pairs intricate visuals with a brand-new dark fantasy story. This twisted tale takes place in the world from horror scribe Rob E. Boley's SCARY TALES novels, which feature mash-ups of your favorite fairy tale characters and classic horror monsters.

In a remote village, a young deaf orphan named Wilhelmina has befriended a mischief of rats. The village elders hire a mysterious Piper to exterminate the rats but then refuse to pay for his services. The vengeful Piper uses his wicked magic to turn the villagers' children into mischievous gremlins hell-bent on destroying the town. It's up to Wilhelmina to make things right, but she has her own agenda . . .

The story is whimsically illustrated by artist Amy Kollar Anderson's surreal aesthetics, as she marries realistic forms with decorative design elements that will be both fun and relaxing for the reader to color. So that the text compliments the work, rather than clutters it, the story is printed on alternating pages, allowing Amy's art to take up the entire page. The result is seamless harmony between story and art, allowing the reader to immerse in a narrative journey while simultaneously bringing this unforgettable tale to life in living color.
