A Whisper from Grey, Paperback / softback Book

A Whisper from Grey Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Lo Cole


See the colour grey in a whole new light in this peep-through picture book.

Fun die-cuts throughout the book lead you through this story celebrating the quiet beauty of Grey as it meets Blue, Red, Green, Purple, Pink, Yellow, White, Brown and Orange on an adventure through nature. Perfect for toddlers aged 3 years and up who are learning about colours and the world around them.

Shhhh! Can you hear that?A whisper from Grey. Quiet and a little shy. She does not shout out loud like Blue, or squawk like Green, or roar like Yellow. But though she's quieter than the rest, Grey makes the other colours glow.
