Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color

Swatch is a free-spirited young girl who loves to chase and manipulate colors, teaching them to dance and do magic. But when she begins to capture the colors and collect them in jars, Yellowest Yellow, the final unconfined color, reminds Swatch that colors are meant to be free and wild. With bright swirls and splatters of watercolor, pen, ink, and pencil on white backgrounds, author and illustrator Denos creates a bold celebration of colors and the joys of freedom. “Denos' text is fierce and crisp, her color-characters wondrous … For color wranglers and windblown spirits everywhere” (KIRK).
