‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Annelore Parot
Age Range: 6-8
This is an opportunity for a child to immerse themselves into the world of the Kokeshi – small traditional Japanese dolls made of wood. Yumi and her best friend Sayumi are preparing for a costume party. Readers are taken on a tour of her Kokeshi world; from her colourful kimono collection to the many different outfits at the costume shop.
French illustrator and designer Annelore Parot has created another charming book in the series about the Kokeshi that will engage children and introduce them to Japanese culture.
Complete with lift-the-flaps, fun die-cuts, and lavish gate-folds together with some words in Japanese with their English translation, this interactive exploration will particularly appeal to Fashionista girls and anyone who loves to play at dressing up.
Other titles in the series are Kimonos and Kokeshi Style.
