It’s always really exciting when Lara comes to visit. She tells Finja things that would never occur to anyone else. Every time she turns up she’s got a new idea – and her latest one is all about colour!
Ever since Lara read that the Eskimos have 20 different words for snow, she’s seen the world through different eyes. Even looking round her room she notices that you hardly ever see the same colour twice. Her sweater is a deep shade of jelly-green-sprinkled with flecks of Smartie-green. And Finja’s T-Shirt? Iridescent mermaid green!
– Lara’s leggings: boiled spinach green! Yuck-yuck-yuck!
– Mum’s blouse: Sherwood-Forest-Robin-Hood-hunting-crème-de-menthe-and-wallpaper-paste-green!
– slightly nauseous green-around-the-gills-green!
The two of them keep coming up with ever-crazier comparisons. It’s a really fun afternoon — and Finja begins to see the world through different eyes too.
