This is a book of profound simplicity. A child uses crayons to colour and change the world, making it kinder, more hopeful place. Boredom gives way to play, darkness to light, drought to rain, crying to laughter, and much more. A beautiful book with a sparse poetic text, but a deep and positive message.



Available at all good independent bookshops and On-line bookstores in the UK and around the world.
