My Colouring Book is the eleventh studio album released by Swedish singer-songwriter Agnetha Fältskog. It was her first album release for 17 years and was well received by ABBA fans, as well as the general music press, with renditions of songs which she had listened to during her teenage years in the 1960s.

Hit singles from the album were "If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" (#11 in the UK) and "When You Walk in the Room" (UK #34), though many critics nominated "Sometimes When I'm Dreaming" as the stand out track, reminiscent of the quality of ABBA recordings, and was issued in Sweden as a promo-only single. The album itself reached #12 in the UK, her highest charting album there until May 2013, when she reached #6 with her album "A".[1]

It was announced that around 700,000 copies of the album were sold worldwide. During 2004, the album went silver in the UK for sales of over 60,000,[2] while in Fältskog's home country of Sweden, during its first week of release, a high 64,000 copies were sold. My Colouring Book also reached #6 in Germany in May 2004.
