A gorgeous and evocative story of how the animals got their colours, from Carnegie Medal winner Tanya Landman and V&A Illustration Award winner Laura Carlin. The earth was young and full of colour. But the animals were dull and drab. The painter decided: something must be done! With dabs and sweeps the painter's brush creates the stripes on the zebra, the sharp suit of the penguin and the bright splashes on parrots.

But what can he give the nightingale when his paintbox has run dry?

A beautiful and gently moving tale from the award-winning Tanya Landman and Laura Carlin.
