What would happen if you wake up to a colorless world. Everything is black and white, dull and dark . The land, the ocean, the sky all are colorless.

This story is about a grouchy giant who hates colours and thus decides to steal them. Read the story how he realizes he did a mistake and who helps his m to bring back all the colours in the world.

The illustrations in this book are simply outstanding. The combination of black and white pictures with the colorful ones are quite eye catching. Illustrations actually make the story all the more interesting.

This book definitely took a place in my favorites list.

Definitely go for it and you will love it.
