Non-Fiction all ages

French Writer and Illustrator

Herve Tullet Mix It Up Allen & Unwin 2014  $23.00hb 32pp ISBN 978 1 7601 1095 6

Themes: Art/ Colour mixing/ Imagination/ Interactive books

 Just put your finger on the small grey spot and start tapping and with a little help from your imagination the whole world of colour mixing is at your fingertips.  Blues and yellows turn green, yellow and red make orange, white makes colours lighter and squishing colours together opens up yet another world. You just have to believe and the magic doesn’t end on the last page because it is a short step from there to the pottles of real paint or the paintbox. For any child with imagination (and that means most of them) there are hours of interest and excitement here.(I have just looked out the window and there is not a child in sight – sad because the book is crying out to be used)…
