From the inside jacket:
"Have you ever heard the cool green sound of a water trickle? Felt the velvet-soft grayness of a pussy willow? Seen the orange flash of a fiery fox?
With a compelling sense of rhythm and images that are clear and fresh, Mary O'Neill explores the spectrum in twelve poems about different colors, from the show-off shout of red to the blueness of wind over water to the quiet white of a pair of whispers talking.
Here is color that can be heard and touched and smelled as well as seen, as each dimension of color is discovered and transformed by the special magic of imagination. Gay or somber, the colors that fill the world around us are described by Mary O'Neill in a way that is sure to appeal to readers of all ages, and each color is made strikingly visual in the illustrations by Caldecott award-winning artist, Leonard Weisgard"
