The Color of the Night

Set in a Tahitian village very much like the ones Gauguin painted, this beautifully illustrated children's story about dreams, belonging, and the power of emotion is based on Paul Gauguin's painting "Arearea" — one of the artist's favorites.

Vahine-Noa, queen of daylight, lives for happiness and color while her sister, Vahine Po, queen of the night, lives for her dreams, darkness, and silence. Bringing these two women together are a young boy named Tevai and his dog, who undergo a magical experience that unites their village and helps them understand the importance of being true to your feelings.

This book is recommended for children age four and older.
