Synopsis

David A. Carter brings the unique aesthetic of his award-winning color series to the younger set in The Happy Little Yellow Box.

This highly interactive novelty book follows a friendly yellow box as he journeys high and low, near and far—until finally resting in a spot that is “just right.” This fun, engaging read introduces the first concepts of colors, counting, shapes, and opposites through the use of pop-ups, pull-tabs, and more!
