These Colours Are Bananas

Tamara Shopsin, Jason Fulford

What colour is an apple? A dog? Grass? Young readers will be amazed by the range of possibilities     What colour is a banana?

It can be at least 25 different shades, according to this artful swatchbook of versatile subjects. An inversion of the way we typically look at colour, this book challenges readers' predispositions towards using a particular crayon for a particular object.

11 items are each presented alongside a grid of color ranges: the  apple  page features yellows, greens, and reds; the  egg  page a range of greens to grays; even grass is surprising, with suggestions of pink. The read-along text is playful and philosophical, poetic and factual… all towards expanding readers' assumptions.

Inspired by the Whitney Museum’s approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world.
