Picture Book of the Month for November 2013

I am spotlighting two books by the same author for this month. These books were published in Canada at the same time as the United States, starting in the 1980s. The books are popular in our area. Perhaps because we are also close to nature here, as they are in Canada. The woodcut art form works well for forest depictions and has a timeless quality.

I have a sense of awe reading these books. The author was depicting his region in Japan, but the setting is much like my home. The stories have a gravity, but they also show humor and compassion.
