What is hidden in the pages of this wordless book?  At first, it looks like there is nothing except for a little boy who stands slightly perplexed in front of a white space.  But then, with the help of a big paintbrush and many colours, the child uncovers a surprising world where different animals come to life and move through the pages of the book.  With few, yet masterly combined colours, a whole world is created and revealed with the vitality and energy of imagination of the youngest readers. It is a wonderful story about the surprises hidden in the pages of a book and the power of children's imagination.  A mini website and an app. enable the young readers to play with the book.
