Highly Commended Picture Book Of The Year 2012: Colours by Patrick George

With vibrant colours and clever overlays, this innovative book is a visual treat for young children

Remember the excitement of mixing paints on your colour palette and watching as red and yellow miraculously merged into orange; how blue and yellow became green? Colours by PatrickGeorge captures some of that magic.

In the centre of each spread there’s an acetate sheet with a coloured image. Flip it one way and you get one image, flip it another and something quite different emerges... a hungry green bird is transformed into a brown rabbit, an orange sunset becomes a chocolate ice cream. It’s a book filled with astonishing surprises…

Colours by Patrick George (PatrickGeorge, £8.99)
