"Sunny is the reason I came to this book fair. I enjoy hearing his explanations, and I learn a lot about Japanese history through his books." -M. Kashi

Watch this reading of The Last Kappa of Old Japan,
sponsored by kidsREAD in Singapore!
Valley Dance Ensemble in Logan, Utah choreographed and performed Sunny's story in the classic Ellen Eccles Theater. The performance was 45 minutes, but here you can savor a brief digest. The sections are not in the order of appearance, but they very effectively and beautifully depict scenes from Sunny's story. Enjoy!
The Kappa, one of many famous yokai monsters, is a Japanese mythological god of water. He loves cucumbers, but he needs to be near water. Some mean people are trying to capture our friendly kappa, so he runs to a well for safety.
