This fantastically cute picture book is all about Yumi, a Japanese kokeshi. She is a little wooden doll with pretty clothes and as she shows us the world of kokeshis, she asks us to help her find everything she needs along the way – her best friend’s lost pet called Bamboo, a rabbit costume for a party and even sushi to eat.

With beautiful illustrations and lift the flap sections, Annelore Parot’s Yumi (HB $24.95) is truly charming – she even manages to teach us some Japanese, with translations for some key words alongside the story.

Recommended for girls 4+.
