Synopsis

The Colour Thief by Gabriel Alborozo

Zot lives in a world without colour - no green grass, no blue sky, no yellow sun and no red flowers. From his lonely mountaintop, he gazes at Earth, sparkling with brilliant colour, and thinks it must be a very happy place. He sets off to steal some of that happiness for himself . . . Visually stunning and thought-provoking, The Colour Thief is a heartwarming story set to become a firm favourite with fans of Oliver Jeffers and Jon Klassen.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
