First review in...


Felix refuses to read any other book before bed...


It's a hit!

I just re-read the book and need to say I love it
even more than at first.

Move over, Dennis Lee.

This is a very quotable book with clever rhyming words and guaranteed to make every reader happy.

The colourful books just arrived and we are so excited to see them and
the very special personal dedications.


We are sooo proud of you and love knowing that I saw the “mock up”.

Get going on the next book with the same talented team. 

Two of your many fans❤️❤️



How absolutely perfect;  I’m sure A&C will treasure their multi-colour personalized copy.  Thank-you so much for this gem, Nancy.   Lovely warm words, very talented illustrator - and I love the dedication💕💙 



Congratulations on your amazing book!  The story is profound and the rhyming makes it so easy to read to the very young...however the message is meaningful to everyone!  And the artwork is fantastic - I'm sure the artists were guided by you along the way as the images and colours fit so perfectly with your message.

Your story reminds me of something I did after 9/11.  I happened to be traveling that day and with my Toronto flight cancelled, we all followed our orders to get our luggage - advancing to our destination like marching ants.  And then, the ride back to London in the shuttle bus - was beyond description. The signs on 401 had been covered by temporary postings warning that all borders were closed and the radio message got more intense as the journey went on.  By the time I got to London, I was really shaken - and very sad.  I got out a project that had been sitting in my cupboard for years and put together very colourful and sparkly Christmas ornaments...working with colour that week was so powerful!

This delightfully bright and cheery book welcomes you into the home of Miss Mouse as she transforms her new house from a dull and sad place to a vibrant, happy home. Children will see how color can work a little magic into their lives and send their spirits soaring.


The Seuss-like poetry guides the story in a fun, memorable way. No tablets or smart devices necessary to travel this path from a gloomy existence to a rainbow of happiness. I purchased one copy in Canada and liked the message so much, I've purchased three more to have on hands as gifts for the children in my life.


Oh Nancy, the book is delightful … and so expertly and imaginatively illustrated.  It has a kind of zest about it, as though creating it and illustrating it was just loads of fun.  


It never is of course, writing and publishing is a serious business … sometimes long and with wearying rewrites … but one has the reader in mind, and in "The Magical Power of Color" children can learn how color SPEAKS


Amazing colour and illustrations and poetry!



My grandson who’s 3 ½ loves this book!

A wonderful addition to any home.



I have already read it to my little one three times

because he keeps saying, "again! again!"


He loves colours and painting so much. So it’s a perfect book for him!
That is so cool that you wrote it. Congratulations!!
