Rainy Day

Heavy rain outside the window, the whole world black and white. Two children sit helplessly in the room, but then they push open other, fantastic windows! “Imagine…” is the magic formula they use to transform the world and themselves.

Jens Rassmus swaps ink for acrylic colours and creates wide, bright spaces for the children’s imagination! Small as thumblings, they climb through the undergrowth of a fairytale forest and fly into the sky on the back of a beetle, only to stride across fields and cities as giants shortly afterwards, with tiny cars on tiny roads beneath them.

Jens Rassmus tells of the power of the imagination in panels and full-page pictures without using any words. In the blink of an eye, it turns a bucket into a deep well and places a ball of pure gold at its bottom.

“An absolutely successful, enormously visually powerful work that is suitable for young and old to stimulate their own imagination!” – Jury Leipzig Reading Compass 2024

“Ink and acrylic paint stand for rainy days and fantasy, and it is great fun to put oneself in these dream worlds and understand how everyday life and fantasy influence each other. A powerful picture book that encourages readers to imagine new worlds for themselves.” – Eselsohr, March 2024
