Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

The Boy Who Drew Cats

The Boy Who Drew Cats - Margaret Hodges, Lafcadio Hearn

adapted by Margaret Hodges, illustrated by Aki Sogabe


This adaptation is remarkably similar to the original. I'd say the only bonus to reading this version is Sogabe's cut paper illustrations. Also, the book uses the word chink too many times for my liking. The word is present in the original translation (from the late 1800s), but this book was published in 2002.
