Floating into the air with an enormous gum bubble, Alvin lands in a strange world where everything is gray. The trees, the flowers, the dirt, the sky, the animals, and even the people are all missing their color.
Lost at sea alone, twelve year old Otto reaches shore on a strange land where all the color is missing and everything is gray. He soon finds himself in the middle of a great war between the Kingdom of Color and the Kingdom of Shapes.
Throughout the Kingdom, the grayness has returned and the ground is collapsing beneath Brandon’s feet into a giant, bottomless void. Nutritious fruits and vegetables are no longer growing. And people are missing, including his Grandpa Alvin.
