This book has Yuyi Morales plus all proceeds go to Eric Carle's Museum of Picture Book Art, so I was already sold. Grey is featured twice, so the book is honest. I loved some of these, liked a few, but overall the book is worth looking at. And the back has pictures of the artists as children!

In this picture book readers discover the favorite colours of fifteen children's book illustrators.

A beautiful book to read, and then follow up with by reading the titles by the wonderful illustrators presented in the book, such as Eric Carle, Lauren Castillo, Philip Stead, Anna Dewdney, and more!

I love that Eric Carle's favourite colour is yellow because "most children put a yellow sun in their pictures."

I think this one is meant more for librarians and adult picture book lovers - but I really enjoyed this one! It brings a lot of my favorite illustrators, each with their own unique style together. Cheers to these children book superstars!
