Physical Description:
1 volume (unpaged) : colour illustrations ; 25 cm
"Through Valério's signature artistic flair, kids will learn 10 different colours with the help of Canadian wildlife rendered in their respective colours: brown ducks, orange foxes, blue whales and even purple sea stars! Different shades and contrasts are used to show the variety each colour contains, while secondary visual elements draw from nature to increase interest and reinforce the colour theme on each double-page spread. Exuberant text using fun wordplay and alliteration make for an energetic vibe and a rollicking read-aloud experience as the animals banquet, dabble and pirouette their way across the boldly coloured pages. A spread at the end of the book features spot art and an age-appropriate blurb of information about each animal."-- Provided by publisher
