Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this eye-popping book, Hoban's brilliant photographs portray the world around us as a glad cascade of colors. Pictures of underwater fish, a jar of jellybeans, market scenes and party games burst with every color imaginable. Smart compositions and super-crisp reproductions take familiar objects (ducks, dogs, balloons) and events (fairground fun, roller-skating, a walk in the rain) and transform them into high drama. Hoban juxtaposes her photos with a simple color grid to highlight those hues visible in each shot; kids will enjoy matching each colorful object to the grids, searching out tints and shadings. As the book suggests, it is easy to disregard the special value of an individual color. Here, however, the reader's attention is focused, so that each highlighted color becomes something separate and worthy of notice. Ages 2-up. (May)
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Hoban communicates the world in this wordless collection of photographs. A panel that filters out the component spectrum of colors accompanies color photos from the natural and man-made world. It's a dazzling display, and another winner from this talented photographer whose work catches the eyes, hearts, and imaginations of readers young and old.
Mary Harris Veeder
On each page of this wordless picture book is a color photograph accompanied by a bar graph that displays the spectrum of colors found in the photo. Many of Hoban's carefully composed scenes show objects at eye level, and each shot has the effect of opening our eyes to the colors we see everywhere we go. A rainbow of brightness, this has all the excitement and promise of a garden catalog on a gray winter day.
