Tentomushi no temu
Yukihisa Tokuda / 12 sheets
Yukihisa Tokuda is a researcher as well as an illustrator, and his fondness for insects spills into the art and text of this kamishibai. This work not only fosters enjoyment in learning about insects, but also invites children to share, via kyokan, the joy of being alive as they follow Temu on his journey. The vivid illustrations of insects and visual progression that capitalizes on the sliding out of sheets evokes a world that could only come to life through kamishibai.
