I received Not Quite Black and White for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
For ages 4 to 8 there is the new picture book, Not Quite Black and White, by the?debut brother-and-sister team. Written by Jonathan Ying and illustrated by Victoria Ying this book presents surprisingly colorful animals and more in this clever celebration of colors.
Have you ever seen a zebra wearing pink polka dots?
A penguin with bright-yellow boots?
Jonathan Ying was born in 1989. At some point, an adult let him get ahold of a pen, and the rest was history. A steady diet of cartoons, comics, and fantasy novels resulted in an author and game designer who currently resides in New Jersey.
Victoria Ying is an illustrator with a background in animation art. She lives in Los Angeles, losing and finding things with her cat, Boots, and dog, Buster.
It is cute for kids to see animals they might normally associate as black and white with a bit of color instead! It is written in my personal favorite for kids…rhyme! A book so fun that is enjoyable to read over and over again.
