If you are Isamu, stones are the most special of all. How can they be so heavy? Would they float if they had no weight?
Author/illustrator James Yang imagines a day in the boyhood of Japanese American artist, Isamu Noguchi. Wandering through an outdoor market, through the forest, and then by the ocean, Isamu sees things through the eyes of a young artist . . . but also in a way that many children will relate. Stones look like birds. And birds look like stones.
Through colorful artwork and exquisite text, Yang translates the essence of Noguchi so that young readers can begin to see as an artist sees.
