This story introduces colour-blindness in a light-hearted but informative way. When Cody goes back to school after the holidays, he can’t see why his friends are so excited about the repaint of the school. As the story progresses, his classmate Gemma notices Cody is behaving oddly. She eventually realises Cody is showing similar behaviours to her brother who is colour-blind. Could Cody be colour-blind too?
