The scenes above are from my latest children’s picture book project, Mysti Z’s Magical Day. They depict the moment after a mysterious fog has drained all the color from where Mysti and her friend were playing. Everyone is shocked and panicked.
I just realized that the book is the opposite of the film The Wizard of Oz. The film starts in black and white and then color explodes into view when Dorothy opens the door and sees the land of Oz. In my book, the world is full of color and fades to back and white.
Can Mysti save the day and bring color back into the world? I wouldn’t bet against the resourceful zebracorn!
