About the Author
Pauline Oud, born in 1963 in Hilversum, The Netherlands, has been working as an illustrator for over 15 years now. After her graduation from art school in 1985 she worked as an artist and art teacher for a while before applying her knowledge to her first love; children’s books.
Before she starts working, she likes to start her days with an hour running to clear her head and think about her drawings. She likes to collect children’s books, because they give her so much inspiration. When she is out of inspiration, she also likes to visit the Museum of medieval Art to stare at the books her colleagues have illustrated some 700 years ago.
She currently lives in Utrecht (the Netherlands) with her husband and her two children Roos and Walt.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a cute book to teach colours to young children. Lily and Milo are friends that spend the day doing various activities. Each activity showcases a colour such as red boots, yellow balloon, blue wagon etc. Milo tends to make a mess or have an accident such as breaking his balloon or throwing sand on Lily, but Lily helps Milo out and take care of him. Colourful full page illustrations complement the story. I think little ones will enjoy this book while also learning their basic colours. A great book for a kindergarten classroom or family with young children. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
