The black book of colours / by Menena Cottin and Rosana Faria ; translated by Elisa Amado.

Cottin, Menena, (author.). Faría, Rosana, (author.). Amado, Elisa, (translator).

This title invites readers to imagine living without sight through remarkable illustrations done with raised line drawings and descriptions of colors based on imagery. Braille letters accompany the illustrations and a full Braille alphabet offers sighted readers help reading along with their fingers. Thomas can't see colors, but he can hear them and smell them and touch them and taste them. Now you can try to see the world the way Thomas sees it.
