About this book A little black dog and a little white dog were friends and they stayed together and played together all day long and each dreamed a dream when he fell asleep . . . Two little dogs frolic and dream of adventures beyond their wildest imaginations, from jungles of the Congo with towering ebony elephants to the whitewashed, frigid arctic where the icy white polar bears roam. Dahlov Ipcar once again pairs her timeless illustrations with fresh original verse that celebrates the unity, wonder and beauty of the living, breathing natural world around us. Originally published in 1963 by Alfred A. Knopf, Black and White has been re-mastered from the original and traditionally printed using the same bold spot colour. Black and White is the third book in Flying Eye’s Dahlov Ipcar series.
Reviews from all over the world
This "art primer" that elegantly introduces children to the formal qualities of shapes, lines and colours was one of TheThe New York Times’top 10 picture books of 1959. It was Ipcar’s first picture book as sole author and its integration of word and image to explain the power of design was way ahead of its time. —The Guardian
