Imaginative, playful, and funny, Pomelo Explores Color is all about discovery and the experience of seeing color anew
In this humorous and emotionally astute exploration of color, Pomelo looks about and discovers twelve colors in all their nuance. He encounters the infinite white of falling snow, the hypnotizing red of love, and the shadowy blue of the unknown. The colors describe our concrete world, but also reflect emotional states, as well as the curious, oddball sensibility of our dear Pomelo.

STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly
"In this small-format companion to Pomelo Begins to Grown, the eponymous pink elephant with a longer-than-average trunk investigates the subtleties of different shades of color. [...] As if expertly parsing the unexpected emotions that colors evoke wasn't enough, each one of Chaud's understated and surreal vignettes could spawn a story of its own. Ages 3-up."
"An unusual look at colors provides something for preschoolers and something more for older kids. [...] Badescu places all the whites in a row, then the yellows, then the oranges, creating a calm neatness that holds things steady while the color examples bounce between conventional and complex. [...] Chaud's art is sweet, offbeat and eye-catching...." -- Kirkus Reviews
