Carl Warner is a still life photographer who has created tableaux out of edible ingredients, to illustrate to children what the world may look like if it were all one colour. On the pink pages we see a fairytale cottage made of sweeties. In the brown world we see a steam train made of chocolate, which seems to be the favourite of teachers everywhere when I share this text with them.
A poem accompanies each text and in the glossary, Warner shows what each element in the image actually is.
It is a beautiful book that can be used in class to engage pupils to write great descriptions of settings. It has ties with lots of curriculum themes such as chocolate, Willy Wonka, World Kitchen, Fair trade plus many more.
