All the colors, turquoise lizard, pink kitty and yellow elephant to name a few, are depicted in poems about animals, encouraging children to use their imaginations and to see the familiar in surprising new ways.

The illustrations done in gouache on Arches paper are breathtaking. The bookmark feature on the left side of the page is stunning.
