Description
One dog's quest for self-definition is anything but black and white in this droll, enlightening tale for readers up to 8 by Pulitzer Prize winner and former U.S Poet Laureate Maxine Kumin and popular greeting card artist Alison Friend. Caesar is a big white dog with a great many black spots—or is he a large black dog with even more white spots? He very much wants to know which one, basically, he is. But as he asks various other black and white animals—a cat, a woodpecker, a cow, a horse, a zebra—what color they consider themselves to be, he is surprised to find that each one is a different color inside.

"Friend's playful gouache illustrations capture both the sweetness and the anxiety of Caesar as he sets out from his comfortable home in search of answers. He gets his favorite one from a carnival guru who loves lollipops: 'On the surface you are the color you are ... deep down in your heart. ... You are whatever color you want to be.' This is a longer-than-usual picture book with more than the usual amount of text, but Kumin's engaging story and its many whimsical details (the dog's doctor is a black and white woodpecker, for instance) will keep young readers' attention as Caesar realizes that he is actually all seven colors of the rainbow."—Booklist
