Caldecott and Printz Honor-winning illustrator Jillian Tamaki brings us a poetic exploration of colour and nature from a young childs point of view. They Say Blue follows a young girl as she contemplates colours in the known and the unknown, in the immediate world and the world beyond what she can see. The sea looks blue, yet water cupped in her hands is as clear as glass. Is a blue whale blue? She doesnt know she hasnt seen one.Stunningly beautiful illustrations flow from one spread to the next, as time passes and the imagination takes hold. The world is full of colour, and mystery too, in this first picture book from a highly acclaimed artist....

They Say Blue Reviews
Wonderful illustrations, intriguing story line about a curious child looking at colors and seasons.
This book is gorgeous. Love the illustrations and the way they move from one to the next. The story was good too, but meandered a bit.
I love riding around in this girls head as she interprets her world. We go from real to pretend and sometimes a wonderful swirl of both.
Tem umas composições tão lindas nas ilustrações desse livro que estou em prantos. Jillian Tamaki te amo!
Gorgeous illustrations and cover. The text/conceptual progression throughout the book, on the other hand, does not succeed particularly well.
Is it possible to give a book ten million stars? The poetic language of the book combined with gorgeous illustrations filled my heart up with warmth and love.
Gorgeous illustrations but the plot was a hot mess.
