Purple, Green and Yellow

Written by: Robert Munsch and Hélène Desputeaux

First line: Brigid went to her mother and said, "I need some coloring markers."

Why you should read this book: After proving herself responsible enough not to draw on the walls, floors, or herself with washable markers and smelly markers, Brigid convinces her mother to buy her 500 indelible ink markers, and promptly colors every inch of her body. With Munsch's trademark repetition and sense of hilarity, the story migrates from silly to very silly, with a completely silly conclusion. Kids will eat it up.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You consider drawing on yourself a sin, like my mom did.
