Shopsin, Tamara; Fulford, Jason These Colours Are Bananas What colour is an apple? A dog? Grass? Young readers will be blown away 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.
