The Great Wave: A Children's Book Inspired by Hokusai (HB)
Hokusai’s classic woodcut of a majestic wave becomes the starting point for a storybook children will want to read again and again.
On a stormy winter’s day, a baby boy, Naoki, is swept into a fisherman’s boat by a great wave. Years pass, but still Naoki does not grow. Must he return to the ocean in order to become a young man? The answer arrives in the form of a mythic fish.
Japanese artist Hokusai is one of the world’s most celebrated printmakers. His famous woodcut, The Great Wave, epitomizes the artist’s characteristic techniques and themes.
In The Great Wave: A Children's Book Inspired by Hokusai, the artist’s masterpiece is the genesis for a simple but compelling story, beautifully illustrated in pictures that recall Hokusai’s brilliant use of detail, perspective and color. A stunning reproduction of the woodcut itself is featured in the book, supplemented by information about the artist and his work. At once modern and classic, The Great Wave introduces young readers to a beloved artist and his timeless portrayals of nature and transformation.
