A heart warming picture book about rice ball heroes who rescue a child lost in the forest.
Omusubi (Rice ball) is a soul food to Japanese people and the smallest and most familiar form of happiness. It is simple yet flavourful and comforting, packed with love and care.
The "Omusubi 7" are the heroes who were created by the "Big Mother" and her unconditional love. Musubu means to connect or bond in Japanese. "Omusubi 7" symbolizes the heart in Japan, connections of heart to heart, people to living things, people to people, and everything in between.
*This book contains both simple English and Japanese text.
