Written by Smriti Halls

Illustrated by David Litchfield

Rain Before Rainbows Synopsis

In the midst of rain, rainbows can be hard to see. But with courage and the help of good friends, there is always a way out of darkness. A girl and her companion fox travel together from a place of loss and despair, through uncertain times, towards the hope of colour, light and life. Along the way, they find friends to guide and support them. Together, they build a glorious future and discover there is a way out of the darkness, into the light of the rainbow. A book with immense hope at its heart, this is a positive message for anyone who's ever gone through a tough time.
