Three different colored monsters describe their love for colors, specifically their favorites red, yellow, and blue. They tell you what is made out of these colors in wacky and rhyming words! Then four other monsters come around and find new colors.

I think this book is pretty fantastic. It uses a ton of rhyming, and action and sound words like Howl, Prowl, and Growl. It also shows what happens when you combine primary colors. For instance, yellow and blue make green! It is full of funny looking monsters, and bright colors, that are clear and great to look at. My only issue with the book is that it seems to be all over the place. There really isn’t a story, but I think kids will enjoy it none the less.
