Namida mixes tale and bunraku puppet theater, tradition and present, in a story within the other. The book, ideal for readings and theatrical adaptations with children and young people, celebrates the meeting of the Japanese and the Brazilian culture through the relationship between a daughter of a Japanese Brazilian couple with her grandfather and a western boy. The delicate illustrations by Janaina Tokitaka value this ouvre.
