Mad at Mommy

by Drawrite

Written and illustrated by Komako Sakai. Ages 2-6.

This charming book is about a little rabbit feeling left out and trying to get his very tired mommy’s attention the way children usually do – by throwing a tantrum and threatening to leave home. His frustration is captured to perfection.

The story has a universal appeal and the painterly illustrations have a beautiful balance. The paint is layered to create a rough feel to them and yet they emote in the most delicate and sensitive manner. The last frame with the little rabbit diving into his mommy’s arms is quite precious!
