Do you like mazes? Brain Bend is a fascinating maze book, 25 of Mister Mourao’s best mazes…mazes where he plays with colour, shape and perspective. These aren’t mazes for the faint of heart…but they are intriguing.
Each of the 25 mazes starts off with the maze coloured in, then you are given an uncoloured maze with the start and end points highlighted, step three is the maze uncoloured for your colouring picture.
I have to admit I really liked how this book was set up. Some of the finished mazes were really well done. How the colours flowed together and the twists and turns of the mazes. I’m amazed at the skill it takes to put these mazes together.
Brain Bend is a rather unique book that features 25 wild, vibrant, architecturally themed mazes. Artist and illustrator Mister Mourao created mind-bending designs. This designs ranged in style from structured to free form. They offer a challenge to stimulate your brain cells as you work to solve these mazes and then colour them in.
Helpful features: Maze solutions at the back of the book, and perforated pages for ease of removing pages, and heavy duty high-quality paper that prevents bleed through. There are two oversized mazes included complete with colouring outline.
Now, are the mazes easy? NO. In fact I wasn’t able to complete any of them without some peaking. I didn’t try that many, just a couple, they aren’t for the novice who wants a quick solve. BUT I do know that if I’d been inclined to take my time I could have worked them out. I’m just not that committed I guess. 🙂 IF you like challenges and like doing them via well made mazes, this book will work really well for you.
