"To those for whom the magic still works; may age never dull your imagination."


The enchanting musicality of its rhymes and the evocative quality of its delicate watercolor illustrations make of The Colour Red a charming read for children of all ages and adults alike. Weaving the magic of colors with a heartwarming winter theme, Stephan J. Myers spins the intriguing story of a little girl who loves to draw, an enchanted book with nothing but blank pages, and a mysterious man with a red hat and a secret, "for when red you draw, in a book of dreams, a simple drawing is not what it seems." A delightful fairy tale that I enjoyed reading aloud to my kids, age 9 and 4.
