"Long-time readers of Hailstones and Halibut Bones who thought it was beyond improving are in for a treat. John Wallner's brilliant colors have added new richness to Mary O'Neill's wonderful word palette." -- Jim Trelease, Reading Tree Productions.

"Originally published in 1961, this book of poetry has become a classic in the field of children's literature... For each color, there is the sound, the feel, the taste, the smell, and the relationship of that color to another." -- Ohioana Quarterly.
