No words are needed - and unexpected things can happen - when a boy, some bold paint, an active imagination and a white wall come together. A stylish and fresh wordless picture book, this original story about imaginative play brims with visual humour, bold colours, and a parade of cheeky animals! A little boy stands in front of the whitest of white walls. He readies his brush ... and begins to paint. First off, a coat of pink - but wait, what's that? The painted wall reveals six birdies, perched on a branch! Then he tries the blue paint and ... yes! It's happened again! Fourteen little fish emerge, swimming in the blue. Yellow, grey, green and purple - there are lots of surprises in store for our little painter... Smart visual storytelling and bold graphic art give this book a unique look and feel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sweet, smart and completely charming, these little books contain very big ideas. -- Junior * Junior *
Every line and dot in the cartoon-style drawing of the boy has been exactly placed to convey a strong sense of emotion [...] Children won't be aware of the amount of work involved but I am confident they will love this story. It is an appealing concept and I am sure they will enjoy 'reading' it by themselves. The absence of words makes the book especially appealing to children at the bottom of the picture book age range. Without realising it they will also be learning valuable skills: through their interaction with the story they will be learning the western convention of reading left to right and scanning top to bottom. For the enlightened parent, who doesn't see words as a must, The White Book should spark a great deal of discussion with their child and this interaction alone will make the book a great choice. * The Book Bag *
You could spin your own surreal narration for a baby or leave contented toddlers to turn The White Book's beautiful, mute pages by themselves, mercifully unsupervised. * The Daily Telegraph *
With its bold splashes of rainbow colours and a wordless tale told through illustrations only, every picture tells a story in this delightful, fun and imaginative picture book. * Lancashire Evening Post *
...this stylish picture book needs no words to tell its story. The graphics are simple - uncluttered yet masterly lines, a bold simple palette. * Books for Keeps *
A charming wordless book, perfect for non readers and budding artists. * Anorak Magazine *
A picturebook which celebrates and encourages creativity in its viewers (of any age) with such true playfulness and originality is rare, and one to be treasured. * The School Librarian *
