Penguin Books, 1995.
A mysterious greyness has descended on Whitehaven. Something has happened to the colour. Rumours start flying around all over the place. Is something wrong with the sun? is it because of the chemicals the farmers are using? Everybody has a theory, but nobody knows anything. Nobody, that is, except Margie and Henry.
A terrifying adventure begins when Margie and Henry are led to an old mine shaft. What is the significance of the stone? Who is the thief of colours and can he be stopped?
“ … a vibrant and imaginative novel for young adults.” Nelson Mail, June 1996
