Sun and Shiro and the Polka-Dot Snake
Sun and his white-tailed dog Shiro love spending their days outdoors, exploring nature together. Every year, they look forward to early fall, when they go on leaf hunts together in the woods, collecting them in all sorts of colours, and when the apples in the orchard near their house are ripe.
While on their latest adventure, they meet a curious little creature called Polka-Dot Snake—a slithering friend who happens to love apples even more than they do.
Sun and Shiro and the Polka-Dot Snake is not only about apples. It is a charming tale of friendship that consequently educates young readers about healthy eating without pointing a moral finger.
Gestalten continues to actively reimagine the way in which they approach publishing. With their extensive range of titles, they not only seek to enhance and to enrich their reader's lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape.
Their origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both their content and their expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate inspirational informants, they document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art.
