Master storyteller Leo Lionni’s very first picture book tells a story of friendship and acceptance, with scraps of colourful paper and very few words.

Little Blue and Little Yellow are best friends, but one day they can’t find each other. When they finally do, they give each other such a big hug that they turn green! With very few words and the power of a few scraps of coloured paper, this is a story of acceptance and friendship – and a fantastic first introduction to colour-blending abstract art. A true classic from four-time Caldecott Honor winner Leo Lionni first published in 1959 with a message that will resonate with children today as strongly as it did then.

  • A deceptively simple book about friendship and acceptance, and a first introduction to colour-blending and abstract art.
  • First published in 1959, this is Leo Lionni’s very first picture book: a true classic, and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
  • Leo Lionni is a four-time Caldecott Honor-winner , and was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators ‘ Lifetime Achievement Award.
