How art can change life

Read a nice review of When I Coloured in the World in Guardian Witness. 

This is a deceptively simple book about a child who colours in the world with a box of crayons. The crayons help her transform the world: “I rubbed out that word “Hunger”. I wrote “wheat” with my green crayon,” and with that simple act, she makes wheat fields grow again. I love the hopefulness of this book, and Maia enjoys the lilting text and its bright colourful pictures. A wonderful book to talk about the transformative potential of the self and how art can change life. We will certainly treasure this one for years to come.
