In 'The Splendiferous Spillage of the Cartoon Wizard and the Color Witch' a cantankerous wizard has drawn his black and white kingdom “to perfection” through the use of his magic pens. Suddenly, his world gets messy as drips, drops and sprinkles of color from a strange color cloud are tossed all over his pristine black and white creation. Outraged at this uninvited and unwanted addition to his ‘perfect’ world, the Cartoon Wizard scribbles up buckets and bowls and scurries about trying to catch the disruptive drips to rid his world of this nuisance. As he looks closer into the hovering cloud he discovers it contains a flamboyant Color Witch who convinces the stubborn ‘ol wizard that as they combine their talents new worlds of color, light and line open up for them.
Through an engaging story and magical illustrations children are taken into the world of two marvelously funny, lovable, whimsical, but very different characters. The Cartoon Wizard and the Color Witch learn to overcome their differences and unite forces to create vibrant and imaginative possibilities. Reading this book inspires children’s imaginations as they learn about the world of art and tap into the boundless nature of artistic expression.
The Cartoon Wizard and the Color Witch is possibly the first story where a Witch, (feminine) energy and a Wizard, (masculine) energy come together as equals in the process of creation.
