JOJI AND THE DRAGON

Beloved as he was by the big black crows, Joji, the Japanese straw scarecrow, lost his job to Toho the Terrible, who was a frightening, fire-breathing dragon. Delightful, simple, almost calligraphic black and white brush illustrations by the Japanese, Elichi Mitsui, tell the shining story of how the crows helped to bring Joji back to his rightful place in the rice field. Admirably done, with easy humor, it's a sure delight for young readers.
