Beloved picture book creator and four-time Caldecott Honor-winner Leo Lionni's very first story for children, and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
Little Blue and Little Yellow are best friends, but one day they can&;t find each other. When they finally do, they give each other such a big hug that they turn green! How they find their true colours again concludes a wonderfully satisfying story told with colourful pieces of torn paper and very few words. Leo Lionni launched his children&;s book career in 1959 with Little Blue and Little Yellow, and this 50th-anniversary edition, complete with Lionni&;s own explanation of how the book came to be, is sure to resonate with children today.
