The Black Book of Colours: Menena Cottin and Rosana Faria

This extraordinary book introduces children to colours in a completely fresh way. Thomas can’t see colours, but he can use all his other senses to understand them. The Black Book of Colours is printed entirely in black, with glossy raised illustrations and braille text to accompany the regular white text. Readers can use their fingertips to ‘see’ the pictures, and consider such lovely things as how red can be sour like unripe strawberries, and how green can smell like freshly-cut grass.

The Black Book of Colours is fun, poetic and eye-opening in equal parts.
