From Two-time Caldecott Honor Award winning author/illustrator of Green and Blue comes Red, the story of a lone fox separated from his pack that deals with emotions like fear and anger through color.
Dark Red, Light Red, Lost red, Bright red.
In this simple, sumptuously illustrated companion to the Caldecott Honor Book Green and the highly acclaimed Blue, award-winning artist Laura Vaccaro Seeger once again turns her attention to the ways in which color evokes emotion, in this case, anger, fear, hostility, and ultimately love in a story of a fox trying to return to its family. Lost and alone, he makes his way through a dark forest, injures his paw, has glancing encounters with humans, and finds himself trapped in a cage, before an act of kindness returns him to the wilderness.
