About the book
Young Yuto, is always in tune with the world around him.
"The sunlight tickled his eyelashes.
Yuto smiled but kept his eyes closed for just a while longer.
He opened his ears.
On his way to school he notices a little shop he has never seen before and a being curious boy he decides to enter in. What he discovers inside changes his life forever. He is given a gift by a small old man, a simple box, that when opened offers him many life lessons. It provides Yuto with comfort, warmth and shelter all throughout his life. It is very special and destined to be passed on from generation to generation.
The illustrations are simply gorgeous and include laser cutouts that are stunning. This poetic fairytale will touch the hearts of all who read it. I highly recommend it.
