Laura Dockrill & Lauren Child


Hay Festival 2024, 

In a world filled with vibrant colours, a young child feels a different shade – grey. Despite the joyous orange balloon, the huge yellow sun and the bright green trees, the child still feels grey. But when a reassuring hand reaches out and shares words of kindness, the child begins to see the warmth of colour again, and knows that they will always be loved, whether they feel grey or sunshine yellow. Delve into a heart-warming and powerful story of emotions with these two cherished creators.

Laura Dockrill’s Darcy Burdock series was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in 2014. Lauren Child is the creator of many beloved characters including Clarice Bean, Charlie and Lola and Ruby Redfort.
