Hiroshi Sugiura, Mitsunori Yabe
This was the first title published (in 1981) by an author who has worked on kamishibai for many years: Mitsunori Yabe. A giant water bug, one of the largest insects that lives in fresh water, opens a lively world to children. Originally conceived by Hiroshi Sugiura, this work steals audience members’ hearts thanks to Mitsunori Yabe’s passion for kamishibai and pursuit of different varieties of kamishibai expression.
