Pete is very colourful and bright; but if he were human, would he be black, brown or white?

About this book

Colourful Pete is the third book in this series of four picture books about a young boy called Tom, young girl called Tami, and a parrot called Pete.


In Colourful Pete, Tom, Tami and Pete debate the issue of colour. They discuss the traditional reasons for people having different pigmentation and conclude that humanity is, in truth, one big family; variety is the spice of life; difference is a thing to be celebrated; and everyone has something beautiful that makes them unique.
