The Colour Monster

Publisher: Templar

Review

The poor little colour monster is all mixed 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, he has a friend who helps him to see that the colours are his feelings, and he can sort them out by identifying each one separately and understanding how it makes him feel.

Striking collage-effect illustrations add depth, energy and intensity to a picture book that can be read as a simple story about friendship, or used to allow youngsters to identify and explore feelings of happiness, anger, sadness, calm and fear. Deceptively simple, surprisingly powerful and satisfyingly reassuring.

A pop-up version and a Colour Monster activity book are also available.
