In the far, far north, Pikiq finds paint, paintbrushes, and a book with pictures of
tropical animals and far away places abandoned in the deep snow. Inspired, he draws fantastical creatures everywhere, and colour bursts onto the white landscape.
Pikiq is an enchanting journey into the life of the imagination and the world of colour.
