As a boy paints a room, he finds little surprises coming from the colored part of the wall.
A stylish and fresh wordless picture book, this original story about imaginative play brims with visual humour, bold colours, and a parade of cheeky animals! A little boy stands in front of the whitest of white walls. He readies his brush ...and begins to paint. First off, a coat of pink - but wait, what's that? The painted wall reveals six birdies, perched on a branch! Then he tries the blue paint and ...yes! It's happened again! Fourteen little fish emerge, swimming in the blue. Yellow, grey, green and purple - there's lots of surprise in store for our little painter...Smart visual storytelling and bold graphic art give this book a unique look and feel.

This is a wordless picture book that has a lot to say! It really is full of fun images as the boy paints his way into some pretty silly predicaments (who knew giraffes would be so... friendly). The last picture is of the beginning of a perfect friendship. Very enjoyable!
