Color Wonder: Hooray for Spring! Book Release

Hello friends! We are having picture-perfect Spring weather, aren’t we? How appropriate that we are celebrating the latest book release by area member Chiêu Anh Urban!

Get ready for an inventively visual experience that allows readers to mix and match the colors of vibrant flowers right before their eyes! Turn the wheels to create and change the bold colors of spring in this deceptively simple and thoughtfully layered novelty book that teaches the joy and wonder of color.

Kirkus Review (January 2017) had this to say – “An upbeat, four-line rhyme… cute cartoony illustrations with vivid colors…  Toddlers will enjoy the repetition…The vibrant insects and colors…bring together a colorful springboard book.”

Chiêu Anh Urban is a published author, illustrator, graphic designer, and format designer who specializes in developing innovative formats and interactive books for the very young. Chiêu’s forthcoming projects include the second book in her color-mixing novelty series COLOR WONDER: WINTER IS HERE! (Little Simon, Oct. 2017), QUIET AS A MOUSE (Sterling, Nov. 2017), and 123 GO! (FSG, 2018) .  She is the creator of COLOR WONDER: HOORAY FOR SPRING!, AWAY WE GO! and the author of RAINDROPS: A SHOWER OF COLORS. Head over to Chiêu’s website and blog to learn more about her.

Congratulations, Chiêu! Best of luck with your latest release!
