Sue and Nick are best friends who like lots of diffferent things in lots of different colours. Here they show us some of their favourite things from purple hair and all things blue to red cars and red dogs. The artwork is stunning with each artist contributing alternate pages in their own inimitable style. And with its deceptively simple text, this bright and bold book is perfect for children learning to read.
