This book is a blast. The text gets a little crazy, the illustrations are messy, and the words are silly - all perfect for a book about monsters. It also shows how different colors are formed. When used as a read aloud, kids can raise their hand when the story gets to their favorite color. An all around good time.

Ever popular monsters offer a great basic introduction to primary colours and how secondary colours are made.

Wild, wiggly kiddos will love this wild, wiggly book. I can imagine mine running around yelling about colors as I read this to them :D (they're still too young to run and yell, but soon they will be doing both!)

Monsters love colours - who knew? When an exuberant trio of primary-coloured monsters meets three gray monsters, they "scribble, scribble, mix, dance, and wiggle" until they create bright new colours for their friends. Kirkus Reviews calls this wild and energetic exploration of colour and colour-mixing "groovy." For another book about creatures who experiment with primary colours, try Ellen Stoll Walsh's Mouse Paint.

Mike Austin has created a wonderful picture book for little ones. Not only is this book a beautifully illustrated colorful book it is educational. Austin cleverly introduces the subject of primary colors and what colors are created when they are mixed. Your toddler will love it and so will you!

A fantastic mess of colours with lots of action! The little monsters are very friendly looking and cute. No scary monsters here. Great for toddlers!
