Join author Raymond Nakamura in the launch of Peach Girl , a witty children’s book following the fearless heroine Momoko.


Inspired by the Japanese Peach Boy tale, Momoko was born inside ripe juicy peach. Once she joyfully bursts out, Momoko declares that she is going to make the world a better place. After hearing rumors of a local ogre who is taller than a tree, has teeth like knives, shoots flames from his eyes, and eats small children, Momoko sets out on a quest to conquer him. In her search for the ogre she meets a monkey, a dog, and a pheasant who all agree to help in exchange for her delicious peach dumplings.
