My Many Colored Days
Illustrated in full color. Accompanying a manuscript Dr. Seuss wrote in
1973, is a letter outlining his hopes of finding "a great color artist who will
not be dominated by me." The late Dr. Seuss saw his original text about
feelings and moods as part of the "first book ever to be based on beautiful
illustrations and sensational color." The quest for an artist has finally
ended--after the manuscript languished for more than two decades--at the paint
brushes of husband-and-wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher whose stunning,
expressive paintings reveal such striking images as a bright red horse kicking
its heels, a cool and quiet green fish, a sad and lonely purple dinosaur, and
an angrily howling black wolf. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a
menagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods and
emotions what "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" does for the human life cycle.
Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings.
With Johnson and Fancher's atmospheric, large-scale paintings bursting off the
pages, Dr. Seuss's vision is brought to life. This rare and beautiful book is
bound to appeal to both the innocent young and the most sophisticated seniors.

Outstanding childrens bookUser Review - Gena D. - Overstock.com
This book covers the range of emotions in a way that small children can relate to. It helps them express what they are feeling by relating it to colors. My kids are teenagers now and still talk about this book. Bravo Dr. Seuss! Read full review
