What happens when a grouchy giant decides to scoop all colour out of the world – from the trees and flowers, from the birds and animals, the fish and the waters? A quaint, fairytale-like story, set amidst magnificent mountains, leafy forests, swirling seas and skies. Sandhya Prabhat’s pictures play with the ebb and flow of colour, startling the reader with brilliantly coloured pages and stark, monochromatic ones. A multi-hued journey in which a little girl who can’t see helps the grouchy giant see the world around in a completely new way.
