Asian

Written By Ronald Roy, Illustrated by Vo-Dinh Mai

Can a small boy in a tiny fishing village rescue a huge beached whale?  Is it an impossible task? Impossible or not, Yukio looks into the eyes of the whale and promises that he will bring 1,000 pails of water to keep it alive until the tide comes back in.

Illustrations by Vietnamese artist Vo-Dinh Mai appear as wonderful woodcut images on the inside book cover.  The interior pages are gentle black and white drawings that share the urgency of the story and the powerful desire of this young boy to make a difference.

A tale of compassion in action, woven together with the story of a young child, his father and grandfather come together in an inspiring book you will want to read over and over again.

Little Yukio comes face to face with a beached whale and he makes a promise to the animal to save him.  Can a little boy from a village who hunts whales actually save one?  What does it take to make this happen?  This is an older book with black and white illustrations but a compelling story about the power of a child’s vision and how a community and the relationships betweens fathers and sons can make a tremendous difference.
