The Black Book of Colours by Venezuelan Menena Cottin and Rosana Faría is about a boy, Thomas, who describes colours using all his senses except sight.
Thomas feels colours (“…yellow…is as soft as a baby chick’s feathers”), tastes colours (“Red is sour like unripe strawberries and as sweet as watermelon”), hears colours (“Brown crunches under his feet like autumn leaves”) and smells colours (“…green…smells like grass that’s just been cut.”)
The text is in both Braille and bold white print and the illustrations are finely embossed. Although originally written for the vision impaired, The Black Book of Colours is suitable for all children, evoking their curiosity and providing a new perspective on color.

Intriguing well-crafted tale of kids left Home Alone in Scandinavian comfort by Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli for a new indiepop band Young Dreams. Beautifully shot by Håvard Byrkjeland, at a house in Oslo designed and built by architect Arne Korsmo (1900-1968), it begins dreamily but then develops a darker edge as the reality of this modern-day Hansel & Gretel’s situation kicks in.
“The idea was inspired by a local news story,” Kristoffer explains. “A mother left her young kids in the house and was gone for weeks. This happened in January, when I was writing the idea. I mixed that up with my own childhood, and a hint of something sinister.” Via.
