A unique look at colours and friendship, now available in paperback. This very simple text is about two friends, Sue and Nick, who like different colours but are still good friends. The artwork is stunning with each artist contributing alternate pages in their own inimitable style. The deceptively simple text is perfect for children learning to read.

This is a really fun book with some amazing illustrations. Nick and Sue love lots of different things. For example Nick likes orange hair and Sue likes purple hair. This book has short simple sentences which is great for young readers. The main joy of this book is the illustrations. They are so colourful and such fun. We would definitely recommend this book.
