Description

Crisp, die-cut artwork and a spare, sprightly text lure readers on a playful exploration of opposites. Purr-fect!

What happens when Black meets White? They make polka dots ("That tickles!" Black giggles.), a checkerboard, stripes, wiggles, and more. And when Black and White come together, get ready for a big-eyed, whiskered surprise! With clever diecuts, flaps, and a final, satisfying tab, the mischievous BLACK MEETS WHITE proves that opposites can be attractive indeed.



About the Author

Justine Fontes says, "After briefly wanting to be a cow, because I thought it would be peaceful, I decided instead to become a writer. I figured that working in publishing might give me a clue about how to get published. It also led to meeting my husband, Ron, a lifelong storyteller in words and pictures. Together we have written more than four hundred children's books." This is her first book with Candlewick Press.

Geoff Waring is a graphic designer in London. BLACK MEETS WHITE is his first book with Candlewick Press.
