An original fable based on the fallacy that one color is superior to another. Even the alphabet suffers in Ottoville, ruled by a ridiculous dictator, Otto the Official. He decrees that orange is the only acceptable hue. The townspeople are further cowed by wearing labels that tell them how to behave: Peter the Prudent, Quilla the Quiet, Stacia the Silly. Only Rozelle the Rebellious refuses to conform and dares to bring a blue flower into Otto’s orange world. It takes the arrival of an artist, loving all the tints of the rainbow, to paint Otto in his true colors!
