You could blame Abbey Finch.
If she hadn't come back from town with tales of a fountain bubbling forth with "colored" water, LuLu and Jelly would not have needed to go see for themselves. But it's not Abbey's fault. It's the early 1960s and colored water isn't the fruit-flavored, Technicolor wonder that LuLu and Jelly are expecting. And having a drink doesn't come without a price.
Celebrated author/illustrator Matt Faulkner combines colloquial, down-home storytelling and timeless images of pastoral America to create a thought-provoking account of what happens when the naive and whimsical imagination of a child is confounded by the reality of intolerance.
