Beautiful artwork and a powerful story about the power of listening to your inner voice. I love this book as much as my children do!
Got the book to go along with Whoopi Goldberg's socks from Dream Socks. It will be a Christmas present.
We enjoy this book, the whole family. I saw it first in a children's corner in a museum in Santa Fe, and loved it from first sight. Had trouble buying it... only used copies are available. It's wonderful! Pictures are amazing (especially if you love cats). They are all alive. The story is sort of gloomy, but very fascinating. I love the book!
Great story!
Loved the plot!
We enjoyed the story and the pictures. Inspired some of the best pictures my daughter ever drew.
Classic Japanese tale that has been translated. Lovely woodcut prints.
