I have illustrated a new children's book by Ellie Collins which began life as a play for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs.


“I remember a story I heard from a friend...
If you follow a rainbow right to its end
There you find... or so I’m told
A great big pot of shining gold!”

Inviting you to follow your nose on a journey through the senses, Walk Through a Rainbow is a sumptuous rhyming story to touch, taste and see.

A book to appeal to all ages, this charming poetic tale brings cheer on even the rainiest of days. Walk Through a Rainbow reminds us that whoever and wherever we are, our world is as big as our own imagination.

With a curious mind and a colourful outlook, we needn’t go far to enjoy and share myriad wonders, big and small.
Ellie Collins’s verse and Marc Renshaw’s illustrations form a mindful meander through a rich sensory landscape that’s perfect to read aloud to little ones, to introduce new vocabulary to intermediate readers and inspire grown-ups too.

£1 per paperback and 50p per eBook goes to Cromwell Resource Centre (NHS) to support adults with disabilities. https://www.careplusgroup.org/services/centre-based-services/
