Sansarinaga did not have a buffalo like the other boys in the village. So he carves himself a toy buffalo. It was beautiful but it was only a toy. What could it do?
Jainal Amambing used gouache on paper for the illustrations in this book. The illustrations show the magical and fantasy world of Sansarinaga and also the world Jainal comes from - Sabah, on the island of Borneo. This book won an Encouragement Prize in the Noma Concours for Picture Book Illustrations organised by the Asia-Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO in Tokyo.
