Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a father tells his daughter about her birthplace, he describes Tokyo in language as colorful as the glowing watercolors that showcase this vibrant city. His story is both tender and descriptive, complemented by full- and double-paged illustrations. From making wishes with daruma dolls and flying kites shaped like caterpillars to discovering the two-toed shoes of construction workers and nibbling on roasted chestnuts, Tokyo springs to life in a way guaranteed to enchant young readers—and their parents. Bilingual text enhances this cultural immersion for language learners of all ages.

About the Author

Irene Akio

Irene Akio was born in Japan and grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with her brother and mother. As a child, she spent many of her summers in Tokyo with her father and the Japanese side of her family. Irene very much considers both Japan and the United States her home, but has been living happily in Seattle, Washington, for over five years … as a ninja. Shhh.
