ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Another deceptively simple picture book, again beautifully designed and conveying more beyond the minimal text. A girl looks out her window on to city street and out to a rainbow. She recalls the farm she used to live on, and how the colours in the rainbow bring different memories and present day contrasts. As she progresses through the spectrum, by the time she reaches indigo, she realises there are things that haven't changed. A reassuring book in its way, that change is not without its compensations. Lindy Jones


All the colours of the rainbow are explored against the striking backdrop of two different worlds.  A stunning exploration of colour by internationally acclaimed author Sophie Masson and emerging illustrator Michael McMahon.
