Perfect Picture Book Friday
You know a book is good when you keep thinking about it. A Day So Gray (Clarion Books, 2019) by Marie Lamba and illustrated by Alea Marley is so appealing. It’s a day brightening book.
One little girl says, “this day is so gray” and her friend disagrees. She explains the other colors she sees. Through “blah brown,” “boring snow,” “bad luck black cat” and “I don’t like orange,” the first girl is convinced to see more.
Marie is an author and an agent (and a really nice person). You can read about her here and read about her books here. And if you want to know about her agenting, go here.
I love illustrator Alea Marley’s work–and not just in this book. Look at some of her other projects here. And read about her here where you’ll see she has lots of upcoming books.

It’s nice to meet Ms. Lamba’s work as she wears her other hat, writer. Colors are tailor made for picture book musings.
True to both.
