This is a cool book of epic proportions. Light-hearted and direct with super illustrations. A giant, Big Nuisance, wanders into a lazy village and creates chaos before everything settles for the better. I love a big bumbling giant who is clueless and a hoard of lazy little people who are forced into action. Buy it.
I looked up Junko Morimoto, who is obviously a lady with a switched-on sense of humour. But she has been privy to hell. She was there when the Hiroshima Bomb was dropped and has seen the appalling mess that humans can make of this world and themselves. She moved to Australia in the early '80's.
