Dodsworth in Tokyo (Dodsworth)by Tim Egan
Synopses & Reviews
With trips to New York, Paris, London, and Rome under their belts, its now time for Dodsworth and the duck to take their first trip to Asia--hello, Tokyo! Bright neon lights! Crowded streets! From flying over Mount Fuji to a walk through Yoyogi Park to a peaceful taxi ride to the temple at Asakusa, Dodsworth and his misbehaving duck take a grand tour of the land of the rising sun. With Tim Egans snappy words and playful illustrations, the Dodworth series explores the sites, customs, and languages of not-so-familiar places. Great reads for eager learners and young travelers. Arigato!
Dodsworth and his outlandish duck pal check out Rome in the fourth stop in the Dodsworth series, where Tim Egan's sharp wit and playful illustrations make this a trip to remember. Ciao!
Dodsworth and his misbehaving duck pal visit Tokyo on the fifth stop in the Dodsworth series, where Tim Egan's sharp wit and playful illustrations make this a trip to remember. Will duck ever learn to mind his manners? Or will Dodsworth have to say sayonara to the duck before the trip is through?
Dodsworth and the duck are headed for Japan! But will duck be on his best behavior in a land of customs, manners, and order? Or will Dodsworth have to say sayonara to the duck before the trip is through? Readers will enjoy finding out as these two unlikely traveling companions make their way through Tokyo. Short sentences, clean design, and gemlike little paintings of the Land of the Rising Sun make it easy for newly independent readers to enjoy the journey.
With trips to New York, Paris, London, and Rome under their belts, Dodsworth and the duck head for Japan: “The plane glided over Mount Fuji. Tokyo sparkled in the distance. Dodsworth was a little nervous.” Dodsworth has good reason to be nervous—the duck bumps into a rickshaw, falls into a koi pond (he cant swim), and knocks over a tray of wagashi! Readers will love the slapstick humor and the odd-couple friendship between Dodsworth and the duck. Four engaging chapters of short sentences, clean design, and gem-like little paintings of the Land of the Rising Sun make it easy for early readers to enjoy the journey.
