Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

The Color Wizard - Barbara Brenner
Everything is gray until the wizard gets bored and colors it.

This book would work both to teach toddlers the names of colors and to explain color interactions to somewhat older children. There is an explanation at the back (actually written by the illustrators, not the author, which seems odd) clarifying how the colors change one another; I think this would be very helpful for parents.

Although the illustrations are simpler and more cartoon-like than usual for the Dillons they are still very appealing.
