Collaboration between Carle, a book creator of international renown, and Iwamura, a prominent Japanese artist, has resulted in a bilingual tour de force about friendship. Children can read this book with Carle’s illustrations from front to back in the English language way. They can then look at it from back to front in order to fully experience Iwamura’s artwork and the Japanese-language book format. On a fold-out page in the middle, two adventures become one, and two storybook children and their animal friends enjoy the prospect! The Japanese characters are transliterated so those pronunciations can be enjoyed by all. (Ages 2–5)
