When I Coloured in the World by Ahmadreza Ahmadi, illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi, translated from the Persian by Azita Rassi (Tiny Owl Publishing, 2015)

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.
