A green cloud and a white tree? Who is responsible for illustrating this book? True Colors begins innocently with two friends, their dog, and their kite, but each time the story gets started, more colors seem to go awry. The narrator implores the reader to help as townspeople, a group of scientists, and the town tailor all try to determine what is going wrong. As the characters engage in comical attempts to reverse the colors, the two friends show us that colors can do all sorts of amazing tricks—with a little imagination. Goncalo Viana’s bold, retro illustration style brings joy and laughter to all shapes, sizes, and colors.
Originally published in Portuguese, True Colors earned a 2020 Opera Prima Special Mention at the Bologna International Children’s Book Fair.
