On a winter day, a young peasant named Makoto finds a white crane trapped in the woods as he happened to pass by. He sets it free, never guessing that his life was about to be changed...
my second illustrated storybook le secret de la grue blanche
published by nobi nobi!
is available online and in french bookstores now!
this book was actually released back in may, but i never got around to making a proper preview. thanks once again to nobi nobi! for guiding me through the making of this second book--it wasn't easy, but really turned out awesome (there, i said it!)
this book has only been released in french, but the story is not overly complicated so it shouldn't be too hard to follow along, for those interested in the art
about this preview--i thought it'd be cool to use sliding paper doors as a backdrop but it didn't turn out the way i imagined so i ended up cropping the photos all funky. thanks to mom helping me out with the lighting!

-----------------------------UPDATE IN REPLY TO QUESTIONS
haha no, i am not french (wondering where you're getting that idea), but i am working on the language part
the story is a retelling of the japanese folk tale "the crane wife"
the book is not available in other languages at this time.
it is purchasable online with shipping worldwide through amazon.fr, or if there is a french bookstore nearby you can try ordering with them.
...anything else i missed?
