Read full description of the books:
My grandmother used to read me this book between puffs of her cigarette. How I loved this story...it's the tale of two kittens, Hush and Brush. They have buckets and buckets and buckets of paint, but none that are the color green. Refusing to have their spirits crushed by the evil paint manufacturing company, the two decide to make their own green by mixing various colors together. A series of delightful accidents ensue.
Written by Margaret Wise Brown, the poet laureate of children's literature, THE COLOR KITTENS is lovely and lyrical. I'm thrilled that Golden Books reissued this classic with the original illustrations by Alice and Martin Provensen -- looking at these pictures again, I'm tempted to get a tattoo of one of them. Wouldn't Gram be proud!
This book made such a deep impression on me that I always vowed to read it to my own children. As I got older, I decided that kittens are better than babies. (Wow, this book really did make an impression on me!) So when I adopted my cat Simone, the first thing I did was sit her down and read to her from this book.
Unfortunately, we don't seem to share the same reading tastes. Within the first 2 pages, she narrowed her eyes, flattened her ears, and began swiping at the pages. I guess it lacked verisimilitude, or something. Simone has never really explained her hatred of this book to me...all I know is she runs away whenever I take it out. God knows what will happen if I get my Hush and Brush tattoo. Methinks it will look slightly less adorable covered with bloody claw marks.
Anyway, I think THE COLOR KITTENS is a fantastic book, no matter what Simone thinks. Thanks to Gram for reading it to me in the first place, and to Golden Books for bringing this edition back for future generations to enjoy (or shred to ribbons, depending on their inclination.)

Read information about the authorMargaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.
Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading.
She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them.
She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper.
Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.
