"We'd like a son, any size at all."

A lovely children's book based on a traditional Japanese tale, accompanied by magnificent illustrations by the collaborative design duo, Icinori.

It is a pleasure to read a fairytale from another culture and while like Tom Thumb, the child is only an inch high, Issun Bôshi sets off on quite different adventures.  He wants to be a sword fighter, a samurai, and made sure to take along the right equipment: a needle was his sword, a soup bowl was his boat, and a chopstick was its rudder.

"Regardless of whether or not you collect fairy and folktales, you need this on your shelf. Issun Boshi, I am happy to say, never disappoints. It skips, it hops, it dives, it sings. .... one of the finest folktale adaptations you've ever seen. High praise. Great book. Must buy." - School Library Journal
