Beautifully rendered paintings show both Japanese tradition and contemporary innovation in visually representing the brief tale of a mother's years of efforts to reform the habits of her lazy son. The artist was born in Yokohama and the reteller also spent some of her childhood in Japan; both now live in the U.S.A. (Ages 5-9)
