This is a lovely, gentle story by Japanese author Lee, translated by Cathy Hirano) about taking care of a pet. What really makes this picture book so special though, is the exquisite brush-stroke artwork by acclaimed Japanese illustrator Komako Sakai. Her atmospheric illustrations skilfully capture a child’s curiosity about another living creature. They are so expressive, making it an ideal book for young children who are being introduced to a kitten or puppy for the first time as well as cat lovers of all ages.
