In a feudal Japan where creatures of myth and folklore are real, a demon sets out to reforge an ancient weapon to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is a six-inch-tall would-be samurai, who also happens to be the final and most important piece of the weapon.
ISSUNBOSHI: A Graphic Novel is a lush retelling of the classic Japanese folktale reminding us that one is not born a hero –– you must discover the courage to become one.

This graphic novel gave me more than I expected. Beautiful artwork, powerful story. This is a great GN for middle school and up.
Overall this was a well done graphic novel that moved quickly, was action-packed, and speaks to how we all have the opportunity to be heroes, no matter what that looks like. This felt like a feudal Japan twist on Ant-Man and Thumbelina and I absolutely loved it!
