Little Blue and Little Yellow are best friends. Little Blue goes out looking for Little Yellow to play. “Happily, they hugged each other and hugged each other until they were green.” When they go home their parents don’t recognise them. The friends need to figure out how to find their true and original colours. They cried blue and yellow tears until they were all tears. “When they finally pulled themselves together… Mama blue and Papa blue were very happy to see their little blue.” They hugged little blue and then little yellow until they became green too. “Now they knew what had happened”
