Industry Reviews
‘The ‘love umbrella’ is a sweet analogy for invisible, protective, omnipresent love, and the story is simple: no matter what challenge children may face, they can always rely on the love umbrella above them.’ – Bookseller & Publisher (FOUR STARS)

‘Captivating neon illustrations add even more charm to this already delightful story. Under the Love Umbrella reminds children that comfort and love is ever-present, even when you are not near your family.’
-Evening Standard

‘A truly beautiful book.’
-The Sun

‘Scary shadows, friends that don’t share, shyness, moving, and such everyday childhood issues as wet pants, a lost tooth, and a parent’s rushing them. No worry can last under a love umbrella … Colpoys’ striking illustrations, which combine an earth palette with day-glo highlights, effectively show love umbrellas both imagined and real.’
