Notes From Your Bookseller

A beautiful blend of the old and new, Takahashi and Tomigahara’s storytelling deserves attention across all ages. After you experience it, you’ll find yourself admiring the stars, delighted by the unknowns.

Spirited Away meets Where the Wild Things Are by way of yokai mythology in this enchanting picture book by debut author J. P. Takahashi and illustrator Minako Tomigahara.

The night parade is about to begin . . . The ground thunders in Tokyo. A gust of wind blows. The pitter-patter of paws and claws draws closer. The air is thick with swirling, swooping demons. It’s Eka’s favorite evening of the year, the one night she refuses to miss. But it’s become harder to travel to Japan now that she’s living across the world in New York.

Unsure of when she can return next to see her yokai friends, Eka tries to forget that this could be her last parade for some time. Instead, she’ll march, sing, dance, hoot, and screech until sunrise. Because on this night, there’s no time to waste—the night parade awaits.

Praise for Tokyo Night Parade:

"This sparkling, Miyazaki-hued story instantly whisked me back to childhood summers in Tokyo." —Kyo Maclear, author of The Big Bath House and Kumo

“An unforgettable story. A remarkable debut that delivers abundantly.” —Antwan Eady, author of Nigel and the Moon
