Written and illustrated by Robin Muller

  • 1989 Governor General's Award Winner

A story of magic and wonder inspired by a Chinese folk tale.  Full-colour throughout

Nib, a young orphan, has but one wish- to paint pictures so real people will think they are alive.  One night Nib rescues an old man from a gang of thugs, and receives his wish as a reward for his bravery.  But Nib's dream is nearly his downfall, as a greedy king tries to take advantage of the boy's gift.  Nib finally triumphs, but only after he has learned a valuable lesson.
