  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 October #2
    Vincent has decided to paint his house—but what color would be best? White sounds nice. He imagines it gleaming against a very Van Gogh landscape rendered in thick slathers of paint, before pulling out tubes of pigment labeled snow, ivory, titanium, and cream. But Vincent has barely begun to paint when he is stopped by a spider who also lives in the house and wants it painted red. Vincent returns to his paint box and finds tubes of rose, crimson, scarlet, and vermilion. But then he is stopped by a yellow-loving caterpillar, a beetle taken with purple, and a bird keen on blue. More critters come out of the woodwork, each wielding a different colored paintbrush. By the end, Vincent's abode is a mottled rainbow of color that pleases everyone. Arnold, best known for his Fly Guy series, uses a simple, engaging formula to introduce readers to different colors and reinforces this palette with appealing, cartoonish illustrations. A starry night fittingly swirls around the painter's house at the story's end. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
