A Color for Sketch: A Book About Colors

Orli Zuravicky, illus. by Giuseppe Castellano. S&S/Little Simon, $7.99 (34p) ISB

In stick-figure Mister Doodle's second book, he decides that his dog Sketch's shed needs some spiffing up with paint and debates what color might be best. "He might enjoy a brilliant green/ like the kind found in a forest./ Or a pink like the pretty flowers/ that he always sniffs at the florist." Readers expecting a multicolored solution may be surprised by the end result. The imaginative photo-collage scenes and lively verse make for another charming outing for Mister Doodle.
