Synopsis

My Blue is Happy by Jessica Young

What is your blue like? A lyrical ode to colours - and the unique ways we experience them - follows a little girl as she explores the world of colour with her family and friends. Your neighbour says red is angry like a dragon's breath, but you think it's brave like a fire engine. Or maybe your best friend likes pink because it's pretty like a ballerina's tutu, but you find it annoying - like a piece of gum stuck on your shoe. In a beautifully subtle, child-friendly narrative, art teacher and debut author Jessica Young suggests that colours may evoke as many emotions as there are people to look at them - and opens up infinite possibilities for seeing the world in a wonderful new way. This is a gentle exploration of the emotions colours can evoke. It is great for budding artists and everyone who enjoys colours (i.e. everyone). It is an inspired reminder that there's more than one way of interpreting things.
