“Akiko and Hiroshi are lonely on the island to which their parent’s work has brought them until they meet Pablo, who shows them the tropical world’s entrancing secrets, teaches them paddle and outrigger canoe, and shares the delights of a coral reef… Wildsmith has outdone himself in splendid paintings of a lush tropical isle aglow between a richly luminous sky and a gloriously beautiful sea. It’s good, too, to have the Japanese point of view on the lingering resentments born of WW2. A useful multicultural contribution that’s a joy to behold.”
