English Association Award Winner,
This review is from: The Black Book of Colours (Hardcover)
Winner of the Key Stage 1 Fiction Award in the English Association's 2011 English 4-11 Best Children's Illustrated Books Awards
Not everyone sees the world the same way. For Thomas, who is visually impaired, colour is something more powerful than for most. For him, colour is something you can hear and smell and touch and taste. This incredible book uses raised line drawings and Braille letters to help sighted readers to understand how Thomas sees the world. The pages in this book are black, but the intricate designs in shiny raised black on the matt pages, along with the most visual of written descriptions ensures that this book is a riot of colour, told through the power of language and illustration.
