Making the world a better place!

Read a wonderful review of When I Coloured in the World by Eye Magazine:

 

When I Coloured in the World
By Ahmadreza Ahmadi, illustration by Ehsan Abdollahi

 

This book is the product of a powerful partnership between Ahmadi, an Iranian poet, and illustrator Ehsan Abdollahi – also illustrator of A Bottle of Happiness, reviewed previously.
The publisher, Tiny Owl, deserves great credit for bringing books like these to the UK market, it is everything a picture book should be. This is a story of hope, of making the world a better place, of the power of dreams and the innocence of childhood. There is a sense of the profound as a child uses a new set of crayons to turn boredom to play, darkness to light, despair to hope, and so much more, and each time this transformation is effected by a new colourful crayon.

 

This is a powerful reminder that the world we make for our children might not be the one we want to leave; might not be the type pf world that children deserve. We should always nurture hope.
