Reviews

As toddlers begin to experience a range of emotions that they cannot yet put into words, this is the perfect book to help them. The protagonist is a sweet monster who wants to explain how he feels and uses colour to do so. It's an innocent but powerful opportunity for children to make sense of how they feel and learn colours along the way. Anna Llenas's simple illustrations are full of soul. Mr Fox Magazine A stunning pop-up book from Templar, exploring children's feelings through colours. If you imagine a non-fiction version of the movie Inside Out, you've got The Colour Monster. -- Hannah Beckerman The Huffington Post Skelton describes pop-up picture book The Colour Monster as the equivalent of the hit Pixar movie Inside Out. It features a monster confused by all his feelings, who then learns to compartmentalise them.Each double-page spread features a different emotion and intricately constructed pop-ups: blue rain clouds rise out of the page, held on with tiny ropes, to explain sadness while a parade of yellow suns bursts out to represent happiness. A mass of big black trees spring out for fear: If you're scared, tell me why and we'll walk through the forest together. -- Anne Miller/Leilah Skelton Standard Issue Magazine The Colour Monster is a very cleverly constructed paper engineered book about feelings featuring spectacular pop-ups. [...] This is a special book to share with a child and enjoy looking at, albeit very carefully! Though the concept of bottling up feelings might be a little problematic, parents and teachers could certainly use this book to spark discussion about different feelings and perhaps help children understand them a bit more. It might lead to talk about other feelings too, such as what colour would represent boredom - perhaps brown or grey? Sharing this book may also inspire children to create their own colour monster or even their own pop-ups! -- Andrea Reece Books for Keeps
