Editorial Reviews

"Aponte’s snazzy illustrations composed of exaggerated shapes in bold, electrifying colors capture the frenetic atmosphere of a fashion show... With eye-catching artwork and a playful atmosphere, this whimsical, vibrant tale with an empowering message is a bold addition to picture books about colors." (Booklist)"Exuberant exploration of colors and self-expression from fashion illustrator Aponte... Readers get a front-row seat as insect models strut the catwalk, surrounded by flashing cameras and eager attendees (adult fashionistas may notice insect cameos from the likes of Anna Wintour and Bill Cunningham)... The book’s real pleasures come from poring over the fanciful details of his arthropod couture creations, which feature as many boots, sleeves, and gloves as their wearers’ bodies require." (Publisher's Weekly)
