Book Description

6 April 2000
There's a Wizard who knows how to make colors jiggle and shake. It's magic, he says, just for wizards. But Kit, the mouse, realizes that there's more to color than meets the eye. He also discovers that the magic belongs to the colors, not to the Wizard. So step back, Wizard--it's time for mouse magic! Ellen Stoll Walsh, the creator of "Mouse Paint, " has shown millions of children how red and yellow create orange. She now reveals that complementary colors--like red and green--can't help dancing when they're put side by side.-From the creator of "Mouse Paint" and "Mouse Count, " with more than 550,000 copies sold -Includes a color wheel and simple explanation of color types

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best book ever 13 Jan 2001

When i first started reading this book, I was quite sceptical, but as soon as I got to the ending I loved it, because it was only then that I truly understood the purpose of the author when he wrote it. I recomend it for anyone that likes life as it is today !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Learn about the color wheel 28 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book reminds me of Hello Red Fox by Eric Carle in terms of concept, though the story is quite different. Hello Red Fox was only about complementary colors -- the story was about going to a birthday party and all the animals were shown in complementary colors (Red Fox was depicted in green) so the reader's eyes would do the "trick" and see the character in the "correct" color. Unfortunately, some people, myself included, were not able to "see" the colors no matter how we stared. However, I was easily able to see the effect here. In this book, a raven is teaching a mouse "magic" tricks using complementary colors. For example, mixing blue and yellow to make green, then using that green in a pattern with red. What happens is the colors move around in your field of vision. I am not sure that a young child would be able to understand this book without the help of an adult. But, with that help, I think the book does illustrate its point rather effectively. I also think it could have lots of applications for teachers to use with their classes when they teach about colors. There is an author's note at the end which explains the color wheel and primary, secondary, and complementary colors. I wish the author's note, or some other kind of explanatory device, were at the beginning of the book, though, because it would make it easier for kids to follow.
1.0 out of 5 stars "Magic" didn't work 7 Sep 2012

The whole book is based around magic that apparently happens when you combine complimentary colors in a pattern...but my son and I both looked at the pictures and couldn't see anything happen. Which makes the entire book pointless.
