Praise for Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!):
"A book that is ostensibly about mixing colors, this is a true feast for the senses. The first thing I thought of while flipping through this book was Basquiat after a Skittle binge. There is a level of confidence to Esperanza's style that is unique in a debut author -- his control of the page is such that he is unafraid to loosen the reins and let the colors run a little wild. The result is thrilling and hypnotic."
-The Huffington Post
The colors in Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!) are bright, energetic and SO fun to look at. With graffiti like line work, and perfect brush strokes anyone would enjoy flipping through its pages.
