This is most certainly a fantasy seeing as kittens to not mix paint and play with colors. But as usual it provides a wonderful parallel to the curiosity of children. This book seems to have extraordinary theme. The way that Margaret manages to incorporate such a tool for learning and incorporate it

so well in her book is simply remarkable. She sticks to her plan and the theme plays out beautifully and is well kept throughout the story.

This book shows a fun way for children to learn about the colors and the color wheel. The kittens mix the different colors of paint to make other colors and then dream about a world where everything was different colors. It provokes the imagination while being educational as well.

This is one of the earliest books I remember having read to me. It tells the story of two color-loving kittens who mix various colors to make new colors. I don't know why I found it so fascinating. I enjoyed the colorful fantasy worlds the kittens created with their new colors.
LibraryThing member villemezbrown
A strong, fun start with cute kittens mixing secondary colors from their many paint cans of primary colors gives way to a useless dream sequence and a weak conclusion. My daughter wasn't much impressed with it either when she was three. Not a lot of re-reads for this book.
