Hayato Ito & Chisato Kubo
This delightful book, large format and beautifully colour illustrated, is designed to stimulate the child’s imagination. If the child was a bird, it could fly high and spray everything in beautiful colours, build nests for many birds, carry a friend on its wings and travel to faraway places. If a magician, the child could heal the sick, grow up quickly, be beautiful and well dressed, change the colours of all the animals; as President, the child could build a house on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, make all days public holidays, enlarge Tanzania and make all libraries free. There are other imaginings, exciting and appealing to the child’s mind. The two Japanese writers and illustrators work and live in Tanzania.
