Illustrated in full color. Accompanying a manuscript Dr. Seuss wrote in 1973, is a letter outlining his hopes of finding a great color artist who will not be dominated by me. The late Dr. Seuss saw his original text about feelings and moods as part of the first book ever to be based on beautiful illustrations and sensational color. The quest for an artist has finally ended—after the manuscript languished for more than two decades—at the paint brushes of husband-and-wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher whose stunning, expressive paintings reveal such striking images as a bright red horse kicking its heels, a cool and quiet green fish, a sad and lonely purple dinosaur, and an angrily howling black wolf. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a menagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods and emotions what Oh, the Places Youll Go! does for the human life cycle. Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings. With Johnson and Fanchers atmospheric, large-scale paintings bursting off the pages, Dr. Seusss vision is brought to life. This rare and beautiful book is bound to appeal to both the innocent young and the most sophisticated seniors.
This rhyming story describes each day in terms of a particular color which in turn is associated with specific emotions.
