Mummy liked everything that was colourful, and daddy all that was not colourful...There could hardly be two people so different from each other. One day when they met by chance, Mummy lost her colour, while Daddy was all red. The doctor they consulted said it was not a disease. And all of a sudden they understood: they were in love. This is a picture book about Mum, Dad, and love.
