There's a Wizard who knows how to make colors jiggle and shake. It's magic, he says, just for wizards. But Kit, the mouse, realizes that there's more to color than meets the eye. He also discovers that the magic belongs to the colors, not to the Wizard. So step back, Wizard--it's time for mouse magic! Ellen Stoll Walsh, the creator of Mouse Paint, has shown millions of children how red and yellow create orange. She now reveals that complementary colors--like red and green--can't help dancing when they're put side by side.·From the creator of Mouse Paint and Mouse Count, with more than 550,000 copies sold ·Includes a color wheel and simple explanation of color types

ELLEN STOLL WALSH is the author-illustrator of many popular books for children, including the successful Mouse Paint and Mouse Count books. She lives in upstate New York.From Publishers Weekly:
The creator of Mouse Paint and Mouse Count dishes up more concept fun in this picture book about complementary colors. Now that Kit, an androgynous mouse, has mastered primary and secondary colors, a wizard bird wants to teach Kit some color magic. The bird demonstrates that when specific colors--red and green, or blue and orange, for example--are paired in a design pattern, they appear to quiver or move. Young readers may recognize a similar kind of eye trickery from Magic Eye books and posters. An author's note further explains the theory, employing a color wheel. As always, Walsh's crisp-hued, cut-paper compositions seem to pop off the page. Kit's pudgy body and twinkling eyes and Wizard's mottled feathers imply an abundance of personality. Unfortunately, the text is a tad stiff. In her efforts to simplify a somewhat complicated idea, Walsh fails to establish the sharp storytelling rhythm of her best work. Ages 3-7. (Mar.)
