Natascha Biebow, author of The Crayon Man, says her favorite color is periwinkle blue because “it makes her heart sing.” This purple/blue color is calming.

Purple, my favorite color, represents rebellion. (Mother said, “Only floozies wear purple.”)

I disagree with Mother. Purple represents royalty. Mardi Gras revelers don purple and green beads to celebrate the last day of feasting before Lent.
