Are You An Echo? The Lost Poetry of Misuzu Kaneko

Written by David Jacobson, Sally Ito and Michiko Tsuboi and Illustrated by Toshikado Hajiri
In early-1900s Japan, Misuzu Kaneko grows from precocious bookworm to instantly-beloved children’s poet. But her life ends prematurely, and Misuzu’s work is forgotten. Decades later her poems are rediscovered—just in time to touch a new generation devastated by the tsunami of 2011. This picture book features Misuzu’s life story plus a trove of her poetry in English and the original Japanese.
