When Yoshi, a remarkable young Japanese builder, runs out of ideas, a magic fan inspires him with new projects. It is only after losing the fan that Yoshi discovers he can depend on his own imagination after all. "Fan-shaped cutout pages are splendid enhancements to this well-designed, stylish tale."--Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Keith Baker has written and illustrated many well-loved picture books and early chapter books, including several about the charming and lovable Mr. and Mrs. Green. Two of his best-known picture books, Hide and Snake and Who Is the Beast?, are about animals. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- In this contemporary folktale set in ancient Japan, Baker tells the story of young Yoshi, a master builder who makes things for his village. Looking for a new challenge, he finds a fan which provides him with his inspiration by way of a new illustration whenever he opens it--a sailboat, a giant kite, and an enormous bridge. The villagers are confused and displeased with his new creations until the bridge saves the community during a devastating earthquake resulting in a tsunami or tidal wave. The magic fan is lost, but Yoshi realizes that the magic was his own and convinces the people to rebuild their village. The story is enchanting, but it is the illustrations that are sheer magic. Rich acrylic golds, greens, and reds predominate--all with a chalklike softness to them. The illustrations are executed in a semicircle, forming a scene on the fan with half-pages opening to reveal new ones. The paintings are deceptively simple, revealing complicated perspective and depth on closer inspection. Story, illustration, and format are marvelously united to give maximum enjoyment to readers and listeners. --Regina Pauly, Free Library of Philadelphia
