When Green Is & Isn’t Best
Sure, I wrote Red Is Best – first published in 1982 and still going strong. Those Green Things – first published in 1985 and again in 1995 with new illustrations when sales began to flag – has now been officially declared out of print.
Don’t tell anyone, but I actually like green more than red, especially in May when my corner of the world seems to explode with it. As Those Green Things begins to fade from bookshelves, here is a selection of my spring 2016 photos that celebrate the colour green.
