In the far, far north, Pikiq finds paint, paintbrushes and a book with pictures of tropical animals and faraway places, abandoned in the deep snow. Inspired, he draws fantastic creatures everywhere, and color bursts onto the white landscape.
"Yayo's simple story, stunning use of color, and magical-realism sensibility take young readers on a fanciful adventure that ends with a sweet little twist…The book's subtle message makes it a great vehicle to help children explore their own creativity."
– Kirkus Reviews
"Pikiq's lively enthusiasm also captures the joy of color, artwork, and imagination. Colombian artist-illustrator Yayo takes readers on a vivid journey as he playfully depicts fantastic creatures with explosive hues. His boldly colored acrylic paintings create a fanciful atmosphere superimposed on the bleak, snowy north."
