The Colour Monster

Publisher: Templar

The little colour monster is having a hard time, as his feelings are all jumbled up. He is red, green, yellow, blue and black, all at the same time. It's making him very confused and he doesn't know why.

Luckily, help is at hand and the colour monster learns to make sense of his mixed-up emotions by labelling them, which leads to a heart-warming conclusion.

In this striking book, the reader is invited to join the colour monster on his journey, as he is guided through his emotions one by one, through a series of beautiful collage-effect illustrations, which add depth, energy and intensity.

It can be read as a simple story about friendship, but can also help children to recognise, discuss and label emotions, providing them with vital emotional literacy skills.

Deceptively simple, surprisingly powerful and satisfyingly reassuring. A pop-up version and a Colour Monster activity book are also available.
