Colour - it's everywhere in this amazing land of ours. It's in robins' eggs, the sparkling sea, butterflies, and partridgeberry jam. It's in the nature that surrounds us - and that lives within us. This beautiful book celebrates that colour in vibrant poetry and pictures. A joy for both child and adult, this is a homespun journey that every Newfoundlander and Labradorian will recognize as their own.
