Acerca de


A Japanese potter and his wife experience the vicissitudes of the seasons in their home by the river, as they both give help and receive it from two willow trees whose tenacity to live symbolizes man's desire to surmount life's obstacles.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5 In this picture book for older children, a Japanese potter learns about nature and life. Yukiyo finds that life and the seasons bring both good and bad as he and two willow trees that he has tended from saplings struggle with the forces of naturethrough winds, drought, and flood. One tree remains standing, the other becomes a bridge. At the end, Yukiyo and his family prosper. This is much more of a mood piece than a story. The witty dialogue of Pittman's A Grain of Rice (Hastings, 1986) is replaced, sadly, with uneven, sometimes plodding narration. For example, most of the introductory paragraphs begin similarly with ``the days passed'' or ``as the months went by.'' The storyline itself is made up of odds and ends that aren't totally developed. Most of the watercolors are beautifully executed with flowing scenes, although some pictures are cut into panels for no apparent reason and to little effect. Marianne Pilla, formerly at Allard K. Lowenstein Lib . of Long Beach, N.Y.
