Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color
A vibrant picture book featuring an irrepressible new character--perfect for fans of The Dot and Beautiful Oops!--from acclaimed illustrator Julia Denos.
In a place where color ran wild, there lived a girl who was wilder still. Her name was Swatch, and color was her passion. From brave green to in-between gray to rumble-tumble pink . . . Swatch wanted to collect them all. But colors don't always like to be tamed. . . .
This is an exuberant celebration of all the beauty and color that make up our lives.

Praise for JUST BEING AUDREY: "Denos' soft pastel illustrations cut just the right Audrey outline (complete with flapping neck scarf), and fans will especially enjoy picking out the movie roles depicted in a two-page spread of costumes."--Booklist
"Denos' text is fierce and crisp, her color-characters wondrous...spellbinding."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Praise for JUST BEING AUDREY: "Audrey Hepburn proves as irresistible a character in the pages of a children's book as she is in those soigné roles of the silver screen."--Publishers Weekly
