The Magic Fan by Keith Baker

When Yoshi, a remarkable young Japanese builder, runs out of ideas, a magic fan inspires him with new projects. It is only after losing the fan that Yoshi discovers he can depend on his own imagination after all. "Fan-shaped cutout pages are splendid enhancements to this well-designed, stylish tale."--Publishers Weekly

Above average story for young kids which opts not to hammer home a message. Clever format too. Not especially dynamic, though.

The Magic Fan is a great book.  Yoshi gets tired of building the same thing and then finds a fan.  It gives him ideas of things to build.  The people in the town think that he is crazy because he builds dumb things.  The town thanks Yoshi after he builds something that saves them.  My favorite part is when Yoshi saves the town.  You will like this book if you like mystery books.  I really enjoyed this book.

Yoshi wants to make things he doesn't have. Yoshi looks at his fan for ideas. Everybody said, 'Why are you building such silly things?' A tsunami came, and took the town away. The people were saved because Yoshi had made a bridge over the town like a rainbow. I liked the fan pictures.
