I had a moment once during a storytelling-with-paint session when my mind blanked and I couldn’t remember what colour yellow and blue mixed together to create. So it’s time for a pop quiz. What colour do red and yellow make? How about red and blue? Excellent, you have passed my stringent examining and are now permitted to add Monsters love colors to your storytelling repertoire.
These monsters know how to get down and boogie with a bunch of crayons! First up we meet three primary-coloured monsters, “Red is the color of roar and snore and more more more!”
And then the party really starts. The grey monsters get to pick what new favourite colours they want to be, and mixing magic fills the pages. Fun words, colours and scribbles fight for space in this gorgeously swirly picture book.
Check out Monsters love colors at Auckland Libraries.
