Overview

The magic of mixing colors, in a joyous story by a master colorist

Zena’s world lacks color, so she sets out to find some. On her walk, she first finds one primary color, then another. But red, blue, and yellow aren’t enough—Zena wants more colors! Out pops an orange lion, a green frog, and a purple dragon, a combination of the colors she has seen. Zena and her friends then do some color mixing themselves, creating more colors and a bright painting using them all. Vibrant illustrations and simple text make Monica Wellington’s latest a perfect pick for budding young artists and for fans of classics such as The Color Kittens and Mouse Paint.

Praise

“This picture book embeds a lesson in primary and secondary colors into a simple narrative.” – Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for Apple Farmer Annie:

“…it has much to offer both the eyes and the mind. Wellington, perhaps best known for All My Little Ducklings, has outdone herself with the bursting, ripe brightness of her illustrations.” – Kirkus Book Reviews

“Charming and cheery, her story makes a great read-aloud. The illustrations seem to step right out of a coloring book with simple shapes, objects, and bright, crayon-box colors.” – School Library Journal

“The illustrations, bright, colorful, and detailed, have a pleasant, childlike quality, and recipes for applesauce, muffins, and cake make for extra fun.” – Booklist

Praise for Gabby and Grandma Go Green:

“This upbeat picture book is charming and attractive. The rounded simple shapes give the art a childlike feel, and the many things to look at can turn the book into an interactive experience as adults ask children what they spy. A delightful way to introduce “going green.” – Booklist

“Wellington energetically weaves an optimistic green message into an urban backdrop.” – Publishers Weekly
