Vanishing Colours
Fargene som forsvant

In a war-torn country, a mother and daughter are hiding in the basement. As the bombers fly over a bleak, bombed-out landscape, the girl takes refuge within, gaining advice and strength from a mysterious and wise bird.
Vanishing Colours shows how one’s inner life can provide hope in a world where hope has been silenced. While engaging directly with current issues, it retains a universal, timeless feel. The story creates an empathic space for the most vulnerable among us: Children afflicted by war.

Illustrated by Akin Duzakin.

Featured on the USBBY (the United States Board on Books for Young People) 2020 international outstanding books list
