It is definite favorite to be read time and time again... You are left curiously wondering what adventures might be next for little Loss.
I have always been a big fan of illustrated children's books but I find illustrations tend to be almost formulaic. There are very few books out there that you can compare to Maurice Sendak, De Saint-Exupery or Briggs in terms of originality but The Colour Red is right up there with the best.
Ethereal illustrations, eloquent yet simple prose and you have a book which is sure to be loved by children and parents. A big 5 stars from me and looking forward to The Colour Blue. Another great cover and hoping the story is as good as this one.
Kyran: gave 5 stars because when I explained how the rating worked he said he really liked the book very much and he wanted to give it the highest score. I asked him what he liked about it and this is what he said ... The cover was great he wanted to read it straight away. He really liked the fact that it rhymed this made him want to read the whole book in one go. He liked the story about the red hat and said no one else had written like that about the colour red and he went back and read it again once Talyn had finished reading it.
Talyn also wanted to give this book 5 stars. Talyn struggles with his reading and usually doesn't like reading books (but Nanny always has him reading when he comes over to stay). He was eager to read it after Kyran (having read it over his shoulder) and had praised the book as he loved the illustrations. Talyn also read the whole book (with a little prompting) but I noticed however that he did get confused towards the end as to how they could not talk in the dream but when the boy wore the hat he could hear, but the snowmen couldn't hear him.
The truth is they were both enthralled by this very soothing story which has excellent illustrations that are eye catching and superbly drawn. I personally thought a few words were a bit hard for kids like 'doff' but that is my only criticism.
A truly enjoyable read and a book which I know the children will read and enjoy over and over again.
