Waterstones Says

A beautiful, sensitively handled allegory of acceptance and understanding emotions from two picture book titans, Grey recounts the story of a child who feels like all their colours have disappeared.

An iconic picture book collaboration about feelings and acceptance from two of the most beloved voices in children's literature.

Beautifully crafted compositions together with simple die-cut design, reveal the story of a child who feels as though all their colours have disappeared. Despite the joyful orange balloon, the huge yellow sun and the bright green trees, the child still feels grey.

That is until a reassuring hand reaches out and shares words of kindness. Soon the child begins to see the warmth of colour again, and understands that their colours will always be there and that they will always be loved, whether they feel grey or sunshine yellow. Laura and Lauren have created a beautiful book full of empathy and understanding that will provide comfort and hope to readers of all ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A superb collaboration between two picture-book giants, full of strong colour and simple, effective cut-outs. - Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian

A beautiful, sensitively handled allegory of acceptance and understanding emotions from two picture book titans. - Waterstones.com

Celebrated children’s book creators Lauren Child and Laura Dockrill have teamed up for Grey, which explores feelings through colours… A handsome hardback book with cut-out pages showcasing Child’s expressive drawing. - Imogen Carter, The Observer

Beautifully created, including the use of clever cut-aways which add storytelling subtlety, the poetic words and evocative pictures of Grey give a powerful insight into how different feelings, including ones of sadness can be defined by colour and how they affect the way the world looks... Full of warmth and kindness this is a perfect book for sharing. - LoveReading 4 Kids, Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month

An absolutely gorgeous large hardback book. Perfect for the classroom. - Toppsta Reviewer
