Uegaki’s first picture book is a joyful tribute to a little girl’s inner and outer sense of style. Uegaki conveys Suki’s determination to honour her grandmother and remember a favourite day with language as colourful as the all-important kimono.
Suki’s Kimono successfully achieves that delicate balance between plot, language, illustration, and design that is so critical when creating memorable picture books.
The title character in the appealing story is a free spirit who wavers only briefly in her dedication to her own feelings.
The story, written for ages four through eight, rings true on many levels.
A fine choice for multicultural units as well as youngsters dealing with differences. Suki’s story will appeal to other independent-thinking girls as well.
An absolutely delightful tale ...
Overall, this is an appealing story of courage and independence.
Jorisch’s watercolours creations capture the spunk of the free-thinking Suki.
