How did people many, many, many years ago have clothes that were red, orange, purple, pink...? Where did colour come from? Here's a story that goes back over a thousand years to a time when dyers and weavers made colours out of flowers, leaves and roots, to create beautiful shades of cloth. It is the story of Kunku and her pigeon friend, Chandrakali, who want to make blue. How do they do it? An evocative story about dyes and how they are created. The bright, bold pictures, the motifs and prints fill the book with the feel of fabric and a sense of colour.

A visual delight

Kunkun, a little girl from a weaving community, helps her family by preparing the yarn for dyeing assisted by her pet – a blue pigeon. As she sees the colours emerge from the use of various minerals and plants, she wishes that they could also produce cloth in blue. A blue that would reflect the brilliant blue feathers on her pet pigeon’s neck, the sea and the sky.Youngindiabooks.com
