Written in lyrical, spare text and haiku, and accompanied by breathtaking collage art by Caldecott Medalist Ed Young, this book follows a little cat in Japan as she searches for the meaning of her name--but finds much more.
The award-winning and New York Times bestselling book about a cat named Wabi Sabi who searches for the meaning of her name
Wabi Sabi, a little cat in Kyoto , Japan , had never thought much about her name until friends visiting from another land asked her owner what it meant.
At last, the master Says, "That's hard to explain." And That is all she says.
This unsatisfying answer sets Wabi Sabi on a journey to uncover the meaning of her name, and on the way discovers what wabi sabi is: a Japanese philosophy of seeing beauty in simplicity, the ordinary, and the imperfect.
Using spare text and haiku, Mark Reibstein weaves an extraordinary story about finding real beauty in unexpected places. Caldecott Medal-winning artist Ed Young complements the lyrical text with breathtaking collages. Together, they illustrate the unique world view that is wabi sabi.
