Praise

★ “A marvel of prose, illustration, and design that invites repeated meditation.” Kirkus (starred review)

★ “[A]n attentive, balanced study of an artist’s sensibility.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

★ “Yang (Stop! Bot!, 2019) renders this imagined biography of Japanese American Isamu Noguchi with the utmost tenderness… This lyrical biography will resonate with creative types of all ages and can easily be incorporated into a curriculum as a springboard for writing, research, and art projects.” — Booklist (starred review)

★ “Yang’s lyrical writing and rich vocabulary reads well aloud while providing thoughts to further ponder and discuss, especially for readers in today’s busy, noisy world. Though produced in picture book format, the concepts—the need for quiet, introspection, and beauty in nature—will resonate across many grade levels. This is a book for all ages.” 
— School Library Connection (starred review)

★ “Yang’s text meets child readers on their own level, framing the natural world as a source of curiosity and delight. His digital illustrations feel warm and organic…The book works as both an introduction to a fascinating artist and a tribute to the quiet joys of the natural world.” The Horn Book (starred review)
