Midas wants everything to be his favourite colour-yellow!
He chooses yellow clothes, eats yellow foods and uses only the yellow paint at his easel. But when he impulsively paints his beloved green Dinoboo, Midas discovers that too much of a good thing is a big mess!
Joan Holub's carefully crafted text is brought to life by Leslie Patricelli's famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Midas's Wish myth at the end.
