Story for 3 - 9 year olds, set in the 1930s Depression era. The setting could be anywhere in the world.

Good for teachers who encourage children to make animal sounds. The detailed colour illustrations will send children hunting for hours.

Alexander lives on a farm, where he enjoys the life and colour of the animals around him - sheep (and a brown dog who helps to round them up), cows, chickens, a cat and her kittens - and a tall grey horse which Alexander will one day ride. When he is big enough. But times are hard. People are moving to the city. The farm is sold. Miserable with his new life in a crowded city street, Alexander is given a box of paints with which he paints the colours of the country on the city walls. He even paints the sun! As he sleeps, his pictures come to life and bring new hope.
