What's Color Blocked About

Publisher Summary

The color is blocked! Readers must rub, turn, and tap the pages to straighten out pipes, unplug corks, and keep the color flowing. But watch out—the color might run faster than you can keep up! Along the way, readers will learn primary colors, how mixing colors can make secondary colors, and why you should never, ever, put a turtle in charge.

If books had families, this one would be a cousin to Hervé Tullet’s “Press Here”—as you’re instructed to shake, spin, etc. the book and then turn the page, the situation has evolved. It’s a cute concept and has been applied to this new situation in a way that’s clever and well-executed. It took my toddler a little bit to catch on to the full color-mixing concept, but not he’s all over it and can’t wait to mix, push the buttons and tilt the book to create all new colors!

I love books that are interactive by moving the book itself or touching it. :) A simple, fun book to help you learn your colors and help you learn what happens when two colors mix. Very fun!

Who Illustrated Color Blocked

illustrator
David Miles

David grew up in rural Pennsylvania. He attended Brigham Young University where he pursued a degree in Business Management. But through all the classes on cash flows and price elasticities, David was still in love with art. He worked several years as a graphic designer and published his first children’s book at age 19. David also took two years off school to serve a church mission to Thailand, which was probably the most formative experience of his life.

David graduated in business from BYU in 2013 and joined Familius as a partner. He works as Creative Director and also oversees all digital initiatives for the company. He lives in California with his wife and son.
