Buy When I Coloured in the World
A child sets about transforming the world with a simple box of crayons, an eraser . . . and a healthy dose of imagination and creativity. In a story that combines vibrant illustrations and simple poetic text, boredom becomes children playing under a blue sky; drought becomes big silver drops of rain and beautiful umbrellas; hunger is transformed into a lush green field of wheat. This is an uplifting book, full of hope, joy, beauty and peace.
