Meet Marva, absent-minded inventor whose day is a series of mixed-up colors and illusions. She tries changing her hair color but gets unexpected results, puts her blue jeans in the washing machine with her yellow scarf and her red shirt (the shirt turns purple and the scarf comes out green), and when she looks in the mirror after gazing at some polka-dot wallpaper, she thinks she has measles.
Marjorie Priceman’s story about a muddle-headed but lovable heroine is propelled by a host of clever optical tricks worked seamlessly into bold cut-paper illustrations. It’s Me, Marva! is a sneaky science lesson, a playful romp of a story, and fun and games for the eye.
