Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos, $17.99

Swatch is a wild girl who lives in a land where colors run free. She is a color tamer. She trains colors to dance and do magic. She has a talent for finding the rarest shades like Bravest Green which shoots up the first week of March and In-Between Gray which lives on her kitten’s leg. The colors always come to her because she loves color and colors love her back. Then one day she spies Just Laid Blue in its nest and it is so pretty she lures it into a jam jar. She decides to capture all the colors! What if color doesn’t want to be caught? What happens when one forgets that colors are wild? Ages 4-8
