Grover Bill is an old man who is feeling sad. He lives in a grey house and has no energy to decorate it, although he wants to.

Then along come the geckos to change his life forever...

Watch as the creative geckos introduce all the colours of the rainbow to Grover Bill's home as he is sound asleep.

They run all over the walls, jump on the sofa, climb on the trees, dance on his head and on the bed, they leave their colourful footprints everywhere.

He is totally delighted and enchanted by his new colourful home.

Great use of colour, language and the illustrations are fabulously descriptive.
