KIRKUS REVIEW

 A series of die-cut holes lead a monkey (and readers) through a succession of colors, inviting stops at each spread to pick out ``yellow daisies, yellow bees, yellow bananas up in trees,'' or ``green leaves, green frogs, green lizards under logs.'' The idea is not to present colors at their purest, but to sample the range that the words connote--reds here can be deep peach or purplish-pink; some greens would fit comfortably on the yellow spread; yellow and white come out more monochromatic. Laroche's cut and folded paper objects seem to float above the page, lending an intriguing three-dimensional air. (Picture book. 0-5)
