Mr White by Yiting Lee


Mr White by Yiting Lee

Who needs colour? Not Mr White! This charming book describes how Mr White discovers something extraordinary in his ordinary and black and white world. He decides to add colour everywhere but realises it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Yiting Lee's simple tale about an ordinary man in an ordinary world carries a strong message about existence, the desire to try something new and what true happiness means. Mr White is the first of Yiting's books being published by Hogs Back Books. Yiting studied Children's book illustration at Cambridge School of Art. She uses loosely drawn lines to illustrate scenes and then adds bright colours to bring them to life and this approach inspired the story for Mr White.
