A moving, poetic story that will have you looking at the world differently and seeking out the nearest art museum.

Joanna Boillat’s art is both inventive and poignant, and a perfect match for the subject of François Pompon’s magical sculptures.

A book that shows the power of creativity, observation, and empathy.

Pompon may be a statue of a white bear in a museum, but he has dreams like anyone else does. He yearns to break free and roam the world. Then one day a small boy comes to visit him, and the power of his gaze, his wonder, his love is enough to start a wondrous transformation. Could it be that Pompon just needs a young art lover’s appreciation to journey all over the world?
Inspired by the famous sculpture by François Pompon, this is a poetic, touchingly illustrated story that shows the power of imagination to bring art to life.
