About the Author
Anna Lynn Nelson, a loving and creative mother, was always looking for innovative ways to pass on life lessons and make learning fun and memorable. As an accomplished artist in multiple media, she understood the value of the color palette, beginning with the simplicity of primary colors and their corresponding complements and moving on to the complexity of blending color combinations. Ann’s hope was that this fun, colorful tale would help little ones better understand the color wheel and build the foundation for a lifetime of art appreciation. From our childhood in the 1960’s, Doc and Moe have always been a part of our memories. Ann’s daughter, Mendy Nelson Williams, has brought Ann’s words and dream to life. With Ann’s narrative reawakened through remarkable illustration and pen, we hope that you too grasp the joy for life and learning that Mom bestowed in each of us. In loving memory, we are very excited to share this part of Ann’s legacy with you.
