Colour—it's everywhere in this amazing land of ours. It's in robins' eggs, the sparkling sea, butterflies, and partridgeberry jam. It's in the nature that surrounds us—and that lives within us. This beautiful book celebrates that colour in vibrant poetry and pictures. A joy for both child and adult, this is a homespun journey that every Newfoundlander and Labradorian will recognize as their own.

Author Susan Pynn and illustrator Nancy Keating are sisters, with a lifelong love of children, animals, literature and their beautiful island home.
