From School Library Journal:

PreSIn sun-dappled watercolors, Bassde chronicles the dilemma of a home-owning duck who must decide what color to paint his house. Aided by his friend Mary, a marmalade-colored cat, George consults a lizard, a ladybug, a bluebird, a cow, a horse, a butterfly, a flamingo, and a frog about possible hues. The final scene shows a newly painted green door on Georges house as the cast of friends mix and mingle at a garden-party celebration. This slight story is strengthened by appealing illustrations that present a variety of activity, composition, and perspective. The ample use of white space will focus attention on the cartoon-style animal characters as well as the corresponding plants mentioned in the text. However, it is odd that the author uses the word mimosa to refer to a yellow-flowered, long-stalked ground plant instead of the tree with clumps of distinctive blooms and touch-sensitive leaves. Also, children are sure to wonder why all of the painting activity thats depicted visually results only in a slightly refreshened front door. Whether this is Bassdes joke or the previous scenes are imagined is unclear.Sue Sherif, Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library, AK
