Title: Draw!
Author: Raúl Colón
Illustrator: Raúl Colón
Publisher: Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books (2014)
ISBN: 9781442494923
A young boy suffering from asthma draws images of Africa in his sketchbook. His creativity transports him from the confines of his bedroom to a safari adventure. The wordless book portrays the boy’s imagination as he illustrates elephants, zebras, giraffes, lions and gorillas. While most of the animals pose happily, a group of baboons steal his art tools and draw a picture of the boy. When the boy returns to his bedroom the animal sketches accompany the book on Africa that inspired the boy’s adventure.
