Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Enter the world of Robert Crowther and brace yourself for a mega-blast of color. This bold and beautiful book, with its abundance of tabs and flaps, offers young readers hidden surprises on every page and a revealing look at color in our world.

Each two-page spread focuses on a single color. For example, one spread appears initially as a simple wash of red. But pull the tabs to see the word "red" in bold black letters, plus a variety of objects in that hue, including watermelons, ladybugs, and lobsters. Each item is paired with its name, giving kids a leg up on word recognition.

Crowther also varies the items from everyday objects, such as blue jeans and toothpaste, to the more exotic, like tigers and emeralds. The illustrations are sweet and simple -- the perfect balance for young learners. With a flair for paper artistry and a keen perception of color, Robert Crowther makes Colors a delightful stepping-stone for preschoolers. (Amy Barkat)

Children's Literature
This book will suggest unexpected, unusual and fun color associations for the imaginations of its young readers. The mechanics are simple. Each sturdy page is made of double sheets with a large pull sheet in between. The background color of each of the eight double-spreads is primary, bright, shiny and substantial, with simple cutout shapes filled with the same background color. The effect is total red, total white and so forth. At the bottom of each page there is a nice big pull-tab with an arrow pointing down; when it is pulled, the many cutout shapes on each right-hand page reveal pictures of objects in the color of the page. There are red ants, green peas in a pod, white objects in a white refrigerator and a cat with a black shadow. On the left side, the tab pulls down the name of the color on the page. Most of the pages include several lift-the-flaps, and some of the pull-down openings reveal pictures under pictures as they slide into view. Typical of Mr. Crowther's work, there is a lot to see. 2001, Candlewick Press, $12.99. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-K-This cleverly designed book with movable parts consists of wordless double-page spreads in startlingly bright hues. Readers pull down a tab with an arrow on the left-hand page to reveal the name of the color in large, black letters. When the tab on the right side is moved, a series of appropriately colored objects slide into windows of different shapes. Each item is labeled in small black print and more examples are hidden behind tabs that can be lifted up. Most of these pictures, done in pen and watercolor, will be easy for young audiences to identify, but some are a bit more of a challenge. For example, the "blue" objects include a cloud-filled sky, a pair of blue jeans, a blue whale, a swimming pool, and a ring with a sapphire stone. Some of the choices used to illustrate "pink" (such as a shrimp, a starfish, and a crab shell) may be too much of a stretch for some readers. Still, children will enjoy browsing through the boldly colored pages, manipulating the flaps and tabs, and discovering the hidden surprises.-Joy Fleishhacker, formerly at School Library Journal Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Robert Crowther discovered the wonders of 3-D illustration while still in art school. "I just loved the way things came alive when you did them in 3-D. Particularly when something starts out flat, then moves. It is the surprise element." He has since gone on to create numerous acclaimed and astonishing pop-up books.
