When I Coloured in the World, Paperback / softback Book

When I Coloured in the World Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi


Told with poetic simplicity, this book shows how creative imagination - through the use of colour and imagery - can change the world from bad to good. With a box of coloured crayons and an eraser to rub things out, one child sets out to transform the world.

By rubbing out `hunger' and colouring in `wheat', the world can be fed.

By rubbing out `crying' and colouring `laughter', the world gets to sing, dance and be joyful. An unusual and deceptively simple picture book that imagines a world without discrimination, poverty or inequality.
