Thought Bubbles

Furthermore: By Tahereh Mafi

Alice is on a quest to find her beloved father. She lives in a world full of bright colors and magic. In her world color is magic, color is life, color is everything. The sun rains light that colors the world and the people in it… But, Alice has no color. Her hair is almost yellow and her skin is almost pink. That leaves her alone in the world. When life is at its worst for Alice, her old enemy Oliver convinces her to go on a journey with him. During their quest though a world full of tricks, they become best friends. They set out to find her lost father. No one knows why he left, but his love and joy was Alice. And what she wanted most was color!



This represents the scene where Oliver and Alice first walk into Isal’s (who is the seamstress) house. They walk in and see the place as a “glorified storage box”, littered with pins, string, boxes and boxes of jewels, and baskets of feathers.  Also, the amazing oil paintings that Alice and Oliver are forced to jump through bedeck the walls. The one in the center on the left is the one that they jump through. The others one are simple mock ups of the paintings that they could’ve jumped through. Behind each painting I made a little picture of what the scene would be like if they went through that painting! I hope you enjoy it and I had LOTS of fun making it!!

    In her world color is magic, color is life, color is everything. The sun rains light that colors the world and the people in it… But, Alice has no color.

    I love this – the rhythm of your writing and the repetition in three shows how color is the driving force of conflict and action in this book. It’s a fascinating and beautiful idea. I’d really like to read it! And your diorama is SUPER cool. I love the way the paintings extend from the wall to reveal the hidden worlds of possibility beneath. Well done!
