Japanese-bilingual author Felicia Hoshino
Join us for a special storytime with Felicia's beautiful new bi-lingual book (Japanese/English), Sora and the Cloud!
"It is tempting to label 'Miyazaki-like' anything appealing to children and Japanese in origin. But in this instance the analogy fits. The nameless cloud is a benign yet mysterious and uncontrollable presence as it lifts Sora, Totoro style, into the sky. There he views a skyscraper mid-construction, an amusement park, a festival of kites and other boyish marvels. Hoshino’s intricate and delicate drawings deliver this parade of sightseeing pleasures in a way that is at once dreamlike and visceral." — New York Times Book Review
