Description
In this joyous, dreamlike book about colors, originally published in 1949, Margaret Wise Brown's lyrical, magical words are accompanied by the beloved original illustrations of Alice and Martin Provensen. In their painters' overalls and caps, kittens Brush and Hush spill and splash cans of paint together, trying to make green. They mix red and white and get pink—"Pink as pigs / pink as toes / pink as a rose / or a baby's nose"—while yellow and red make orange, and red and blue make purple, until, almost by accident, they pour blue and yellow to make green. Sized and illustrated just like the original Little Golden Books edition, this classic title for youngsters up to 7 is presented at last in durable laminated hard covers to hold up to years of enthusiastic affection.

"In a way, the book was written to teach facts about color, but its real subject is the huge pleasure to be found in the seeing and feeling of color."—Paul O. Zelinsky

"The Color Kittens continues to capture my heart and my imagination because there is something about the sheer messiness of discovery and creativity that Hush and Brush embody that I've never quite found in another book."—Regina Barreca
