Kamishibai Man
by Allen Say

Caldecott medal winner Allen Say transports readers to the Japan of his childhood with Kamishibai Man, the tale of an old storyteller who returns to the city and discovers the children he used to entertain have not forgotten him. Mr. Say’s unique combination of classic watercolors and looser brushwork, evocative of the kamishibai stories themselves, tell a story within a story, transporting readers to a magical time when the streets of Japan were filled with adventure and intrigue.
