About the Author
Rumi Hara was born in Kyoto, Japan, and started printing her comics on a tiny home printer while working as a translator in Tokyo in 2010. After receiving an MFA in illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design, Rumi moved to New York in 2014, where she now lives and works as an illustrator and comics artist. Her comics series Nori was first self-published as minicomics and was nominated for an Ignatz Award in 2018.

"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

"Magically illustrated, the collection combines Japanese traditions with modern life through the eyes of the curious and adorable Nori."--Ms. Magazine

"Dreamy and intoxicating... Nori races through her neighborhood--chasing rabbits, befriending bats, tussling with classmates, keeping the grown-ups on their toes--and the scenery is vibrant and immersive, so detailed it's easy to get lost in them yourself. In a time when exploration might be next to impossible, living vicariously through someone else's is the next best thing--and Nori is the perfect vehicle."
--Arianna Rebolini, Buzzfeed Books

"This sweet peek into the world of a four-year-old will charm readers of all ages." --School Library Journal

Winner of the silver MoCCA Arts Festival Award of Excellence (2018); nominee for the 2018 Ignatz Awards for Outstanding Series and Promising New Talent.
