Once upon a time a wonderful rainbow shone brightly over the Kingdom of Beautiful Colours, telling the King and his children that all was well. The yellow cornfields were full of grain to feed the people, the lush green meadows nourished the animals and the blue forests were abundant with lumber to build fires and homes.


 


Before the King begins a long journey, he entrusts each of his children with part of the kingdom, each with its own rainbow, so that they will learn to rule the land with wisdom and care. While three of the siblings work hard for their parts of the kingdom and keep their rainbows bright, the youngest prince tires of his responsibilities quickly. When a cunning imp offers to do his work for him, the lazy prince foolishly trusts him.


 


Will the young prince learn the value of hard work, and discover that short cuts have consequences, or will his rainbow be forever diminished?


 


The Kingdom of Beautiful Colours is a heart-warming and inspiring picture book adaptation of the much-loved tale from master storyteller Isabel Wyatt, accompanied by soft, ethereal watercolour illustrations by Waldorf artist and teacher Sara Parrilli.
Isabel Wyatt (1901 – 1992) was a well-known storyteller from England. She spent many years teaching young children and was then, until her retirement in 1965, co-director of studies at Hawkwood College in Gloucestershire. Isabel compiled many story collections for children, and her books include The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book, The Eight-Year-Old Legend Book, Norse Hero Tales, Hay for My Ox and Other Stories, Legends of the Norse Kings, Legends of King Arthur and Magical Wonder Tales. Her story The Kingdom of Beautiful Colours was adapted into a picture book illustrated by Sara Parrilli.
