The reds, the yellows, and the blues all think they're the best in this vibrant, thought-provoking picture book from Arree Chung, with a message of acceptance and unity.

In the beginning, there were three colors . . .



and Blues.

All special in their own ways, all living in harmony—until one day, a Red says "Reds are the best!" and starts a color kerfuffle. When the colors decide to separate, is there anything that can change their minds?

A Yellow, a Blue, and a never-before-seen color might just save the day in this inspiring book about color, tolerance, and embracing differences.

Arree Chungis the author and illustrator ofOut! and the Ninja! series, which includesNinja!,Ninja! Attack of the Clan, and Ninja Claus! You can usually find him playing basketball or riding his bike near his home in the San Francisco Bay Area.
