Introducing The Color Factory, an interactive and entertaining picture book in the vein of Hervé Tullet’s Press Here and Mix It Up! and a wonderful follow-up to The Black and White Factory. Welcome to the Color Factory! Penguin, zebra, and panda will take you on a very special tour to see all the wonderful, factory-approved colors that are made here, like: Robin’s Egg Blue Canary Yellow Chocolate Brown Fire Engine Red But when the tour gets to the perfect replicator machine, the factory workers mix Canary Yellow and Fire Engine Red only to find that the new color is not factory approved! It’s up to the readers to help get the non-factory-approved colors off the page! But if they can’t, the factory must be closed. Can penguin, zebra, and panda come together to approve the new colors (which are fluorescent!)?
