KIRKUS REVIEW

With text appearing in Japanese and English, a simple story about a little boy who is worried that his widowed grandfather is lonely--until he goes with him to a public bath and realizes how many friends Grandpa has. Of interest especially for its handsome woodcuts of the village scene, including a detailed depiction of men and boys of all ages chatting as they go through the bath's routine. Fine ""multicultural"" material.
