Boldly outlined, naïf-style illustrations are paired with mysterious mischief in this entry from Japanese artist Yokococo. … It’s a sly junior mystery with some sparkling moments…
Yokococo’s graphic, textured images are full of charm, and the contrasting light and dark illustrations reinforce the good versus bad theme nicely. Kids will enjoy the surprise ending and may recognize the yin and the yang inside themselves.
