From the Author:

The Rub'al Khali is one of the least explored areas on earth. Rub'al Khali - otherwise known as "The Empty Quarter" - was so named because it was once thought to be devoid of life. In fact, expeditions in 2006 found 31 new plant varieties and 24 species of birds inhabiting the region along with animal species which include camels, the sand fox, gazelles, sand cats, Cape hares and oryxes."When I first visited the desert in Rub'Al Khali a few years ago, I fell in love with it for many reasons, the breathtaking panorama of soft red sand layered with strains of cobalt blue and white, the boundlessness of the terrain and the quiet stillness," says Carson. " The desert is beautiful in its solitude and magical with its hidden life surviving one of the harshest climates on earth," says Carson. "It engulfs you and fills you with a sense of awe. It is one of the most magnificent places on our planet. I knew it would be an ideal setting for one of my children's books.""This book and the Adventures of Sigi series is particularly timely in the education of children about the diversity of peoples, their culture, religions, and geography," says Candace. "My books are about building a strong self-concept, accepting who we are and the knowledge that we are special. It is okay to be different, important to be kind, acceptable to have fears. We all make mistakes, but strive to be better to those around us. Self-confidence is something that everyone needs and if you have it, you can tackle any challenge that life offers. The people of the United Arab Emirates practice hospitality, generosity, good manners and consideration of others. I have visited three times and have always been treated as an honored guest."

From the Inside Flap:

WORDS AND COLORIt's easy to see who's speaking to me.Matar's skin is very light.His words are always in white.I met four cats in the Rub'al Khalibut, you know, I heard from only three.   Eeny's words are as orange as juice   Meeny's words are as brown as a Moose.   Black's the color of Mighty's words--like the night.   Mo said nothing and was always out of sight.The Sand Gecko's skin has a pinkish huebut his words are in teal, a shade of blue.Purple is the color of the Falcon's words.He is strong and the fastest of all birds.The one who takes good care of me,  speaks in words as green as a pea.My words are always in yellow, just like the sunBecause I am a fine fellow and lots of fun!
