Mouse paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh (1989)

[Published by Orchard Books]

The advantage of being a white mouse on a white piece of paper is that a cat won’t be able to spot you. But one day, our three white mice discover three jars of paint, and life is destined to become a whole lot more colourful.

Very quickly, three white mice become a red, a yellow and a blue mouse. But they don’t stop there, because everyone knows the most fun part of painting is mixing colours! I’m almost certain that if mice came in bright colours like the cuties below there would be a lot less screaming and standing on chairs in the world.

This wonderful classic is a great introduction to colour-mixing, and lends itself very nicely to a crafting bonanza.

Check out Mouse Paint at Auckland Libraries.
