The Colour Catchers is a story by Johanna Bell about a little girl and her grandma who ‘catch’ colours in the bushland of Australia’s Northern Territory.

Violet and her Granna live in the bush. Every morning, they wake up before the sun and go to catch all the colours as they appear on the horizon. When Granna gets sick, Violet decides to colour catch on her own... and discovers that colours can be found everywhere, even in your imagination.

Johanna lives in Darwin with her partner, daughter and a backyard full of green tree frogs. Her writing career got off to a bumpy start when she was so busy composing a story in her head that she accidentally drove into the back of a taxi. It was while driving on a bumpy stretch of road outside Alice Springs that the beginnings of the Cheeky Dog books, took shape. Working with Dion has changed the way Johanna sees the world and tells stories.
