It's a matter of edge detection. There is a very powerful plugin called GMIC that contain several predefined filters for that:

RE: convert photo to line art (coloring book)
I know this is an old post now but I thought I would chuck in a couple of links that have just helped me :

http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Photo_To_Sketch/ - good post on doing it directly in GIMP and it has some colour fills as well which I have used to spice up a couple of my shots.

Also found this site which I used and then added the colour fills in myself afterwards, it did the line drawing better than I could get it, it says you need to pay but it gives free credits when you join so I just used those:
