This book is stunning. The story is of friendship and a journey through the months and seasons, but the illustrations will just take your breath away. Absolutely charming.

A visually stunning picture book by the winner of the International Award for Illustration at the Bologna Children's Book Fair, Satoe Tone. Her artwork has been praised world-wide, and her picture books are available in not only Japanese, but have been translated into French, Italian, Chinese, Spanish, and Russian. This is the long-awaited English edition of her popular picture book Pippo's Journey. The canvas-like texture and soft color tones will delight not only children, but adults as well. This beautiful picture book is a piece of art in itself, and a perfect gift for anyone with a love for art, illustration, and design. It tells the story of a lonely frog named Pippo, who befriends a little Sheep and goes on a journey. Through his dreamy travels, Pippo learns what is really worth searching for.
