    It's the story of a boy, Nib, who acquires an enchanted paintbrush with which he grants life to any object he chooses to illustrate.

    But the mystical gift brings Nib more heartache than fulfillment until he learns to paint what he sees with his heart rather than simply what he sees with his eyes. Thus Nib is able to dispose of the magic paintbrush and resolve the troubles it had brought him.
