Yoshitomo Nara, one of the most popular contemporary artists in the world, is at the forefront of a wave of Japanese artists whose work exuberantly erases the line between pop culture and fine art.
In his first book for children, Nara tells the charming story of a puppy so large that no one notices him - until a determined little girl climbs high enough to meet him and become his friend.
A sweet tale from an artist for whom childhood holds a magical appeal. "The Lonesome Puppy" is a delight not only for young readers but also for Nara's legion of adult fans.
