The White Book

By Silvia Borando, Lorenzo Clerici, Elisabetta Pica

No words are needed – and unexpected things can happen – when a boy, some bold paint, an active imagination and a white wall come together.

"You could spin your own surreal narration for a baby or leave contented toddlers to turn The White Book’s beautiful, mute pages by themselves, mercifully unsupervised" Telegraph A stylish and fresh wordless picture book, this original story about imaginative play brims with visual humour, bold colours, and a parade of cheeky animals! A little boy stands in front of the whitest of white walls. He readies his brush … and begins to paint. First off, a coat of pink – but wait, what’s that? The painted wall reveals six birdies, perched on a branch! Then he tries the blue paint and … yes! It’s happened again! Fourteen little fish emerge, swimming in the blue. Yellow, grey, green and purple – there are lots of surprises in store for our little painter...

  • Perfect for young readers learning their first colours and animals, fans of wordless picture books and design-loving parents.
  • Stylish yet incredibly accessible, this book introduces the fresh, playful bookmaking of minibombo to our list.
  • Visit the minibombo website for activities and ideas for imaginative play inspired by the little painter's story.
