A Color for Sketch

A Book About Colors

Illustrated by Giuseppe Castellano

About The Book

In A Color for Sketch, Mister Doodle tries to figure out what color to paint his dog Sketch's doghouse.

This house needs a touch up, he thought. Paint would do the trick!
But what color would Sketch like best? What color would he pick?

Maybe a refreshing shade of blue, like the color of the sea.
Or the golden yellow of a humming honeybee.

As his search for a color that Sketch would approve of comes to an end, Mister Doodle soon realizes that he's actually known the perfect color all along!

Raves and Reviews

In stick-figure Mister Doodle's second book, he decides that his dog Sketch's shed needs some spiffing up with paint and debates what color might be best. Readers expecting a multicolored solution may be surprised by the end result. The imaginative photo-collage scenes and lively verse make for another charming outing for Mister Doodle.
