Little blue and little yellow 3+

Leo Lionni / 40 min

Little Blue and Little Yellow are the best of friends. Together, they go to school and play. One day, they embrace and become – green. They return home different, and are not recognized by their families. Little Blue and Little Yellow cry and cry—all the way to recognition. Through a dynamic interplay of colors, little and big theatregoers alike come face to face with many important questions about themselves and others.

Leo Lionni gained extensive recognition with his picture book Little Blue and Little Yellow, published in 1959. He was the first illustrator to use collage as a fundamental technique. To celebrate the Slovenian premiere, Miš Publishing issued the picture book in Slovene as well.
