Color Me Lucy.
By Tom Watson; illustrations by Len Epstein;
Running Press ($9.95)
Harkening back to the 1950s, when two I Love Lucy coloring books were issued, this Running Press edition features brand new "pages to color," designed by Len Epstein. All the famous scenes are represented: Lucy rehearsing the Vitameatavegamin commercial, Lucy after she fell into the starch vat, Lucy in a black wig, trying to seduce Ricky, the Ricardos and Mertzes singing "California Here I Come," Lucy with her fake nose on fire, etc., etc.
For those who think their best Crayola days are behind them, the publisher has included synopses of the 40+ episodes represented. There's also a brief introduction by Tom Watson, who reminds us of some of the reasons we all still love Lucy.*
Available in bookstores and novelty shops.
_______________*Note: Introduction is shortened version of that prepared by
the author for "I Love Lucy: The Classic Moments," available
from the same publisher.
