About the Author
"The relationship between mischievous- four-year old Nori and her grandmother shines through these pages in rich evocative detail, full of humor, depth of feeling, and a sense of family history and tradition. Beautifully drawn locations in Japan and Hawaii immerse the reader in their world, populated by grinning bats, leaping rabbits, a taste of Mochi--and the wonder and curiosity of childhood."--Glynnis Fawkes
"Rumi Hara's, Nori is vivid and lush with subtle magic and a calm sense of wonder, drawing readers into a masterfully drawn world where the presence of mystical nature spirits are as palpable as the splash of frogs jumping through water and the oily sheen of hot mochi wrapped in salted seaweed. In following Nori's whimsical adventures, I am reminded of my own long-forgotten experiences of childhood wonder and magic."--Yumi Sakugawa, author of The Little Book of Life Hacks: How to Make Your Life Happier, Healthier and More Beautiful
"Unflinching and playful. Timeless cartooning with a fresh voice."--Matthew Forsythe
