Summary
The Colour Thief is a story about depression. Written by Andrew Fusek Peters, it recounts a child's experience of losing his father to depression. As the illness takes hold his father disappears into a world of pain and confusion taking with it the once colourful life they both shared. The boy fears that he is somehow to blame for his fathers condition despite reassurances to the contrary. As the father seeks help a mere glint of colour reappears and with it hope that they can be full of colour once again. An ideal book for parents and carers to share with children to help them make sense of the devastating effects that depression can cause. Poignant illustrations show sensitivity and pain in equal measure. Bought to life by the award-winning illustrator Karin Littlewood. Depression affects 1 in 4 people at some point in their life. This book is a way to open up discussion to support children who may be experiencing depression within their family
