My kids book finally makes U.S. market!—sort of….

Posted on Thursday 25 February 2010

Well, not quite a wide release but the book is available at

Stuart Ng Bookstore!

They only carry 40 copies. So hurry if you want to purchase it!

The prices are pretty generous I think.

The standard edition is $25 that includes a nice English translation packet I personally prepared.

20 copies out of 40 are the deluxe edition which include an original watercolor sketch at $50.(which I’ll never be able to do again at this low cost…)

Some of you who have been asking me about the availability of the book, hopefully can get hold of it at last!

It was a lot more work than I expected… (that’s why I needed a drink!)

    Hey Dice,

    My Mom bought 2 copies for me directly Japan. I read it. It is a children’s book but it is pure poetry in words and imagery. But, the original watercolor was too tempting so I just reserved a 3rd copy through Stuarts. The other 2 copies will become gifts. The price of original watercolor is too generous so Drinks are on me next time that I see you.
