Difference is only skin deep
This intriguing silent picturebook invites children to look at and beyond the colour of people
People come in different colours - and some of them change colour too. You might be blue with cold or be feeling a little green, but no matter what your race, you get feverish when you're sick, you can go cross-eyed with fear - and if you cut yourself, you bleed red.
People are different - and people are the same. That is the message of this wordless picturebook, which takes a playful yet serious look at race, colour and the emotions.
