Reviews

PreS‘Bold watercolors enhance this charming story of a kitten and its hunt for a favorite color. It checks out nine different hues before deciding that orange is the winner because it is the color of Cat's mother, a big orange tabby. The sweet ending should be a delightful surprise for toddlers. The entertaining lesson about colors will be a hit with children and parents alike. Striking two-page spreads quickly draw readers into the simple and unassuming story, while the dramatic and cheerful artwork is a definite plus.‘Melissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL

In her first book for children, British artist Cabrera covers almost every inch of space with thick, energetic paint strokes with the look of finger-painting. Her style exudes the joy of creation: the illustrations possess a tactile vitality and a just-ripped-from-the easel freshness, almost as if the vibrant colors have yet to dry. The story is like a guessing game: through a series of simple questions, the reader is asked to figure out which of 10 colors is the favorite of the hero, a bright-eyed orange kitten with dashing black stripes. "Is it pink?" reads a spread that finds the kitten peeping through a field of enormous flowers. "Pink are the petals of my favorite flowers." Cabrera seems to revel in putting her sassily rendered kitten through its paces‘on other spreads, the cat perches in a black night aflutter with gleeful bats, leaps through a blue sky ("where I chase the birds"), lolls on a red rug in the company of a mouse. The book's playfulness extends to the typography (actually a mixture of type and calligraphy), which skips and tumbles on the page. A noteworthy entry in a crowded field of color-concept books. Ages 3-7. (May)

* "Big, bold, and bright...this cheerful picture book gives young children a chance to learn their colors." --Booklist, starred review

"Bold watercolors enhance this charming story of a kitten and its hunt for a favorite color." --School Library Journal

"Her style exudes the joy of creation." --Publishers Weekly

Those who think they've seen everything in the ubiquitous color concept-book genre haven't seen Cabrera's debut, an irresistible take on the subject.... The art is childlike and comforting, with broad, visible strokes of the brush. Impish and informational." --Kirkus Reviews
