Yoshi’s Feast

by Kimiko Kajikawa
Illustrated by Yumi Heo

Published by DK Ink, 2000
32 pages
ISBN: 0-7894-2607-2

Ages 4 - 8

Yoshi the fan maker lives next-door to Sabu, who broiled delcious-smelling eels to sell the to few customers who came his way. Every night Yoshi watched Sabu gobble up all the leftovers, without once offering him a taste. Sabu thought it only fair that Yoshi pay for the eels if he wanted to eat them. A rift soon grew between the neighbors, with Sabu insisting that Yoshi pay for the privilege of smelling the broiled eels. Yoshi’s clever problem-solving leads to an amusing and satisfying resolution to this traditional Japanese tale. Kajikawa’s zesty retelling uses marvelous onomatopoeia that makes the story a pleasure to read aloud. Yumi Heo’s masterful oil, pencil and collage illustrations capture the humor and energy of the story. Highly Commended, 2001 Charlotte Zolotow Award CCBC categories: Folklore, Mythology, and Traditional Literature; New Editions of Old Favorites.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
