Ten Oni Drummers

By School Library Journal

[TEN ONI DRUMMERS] is a humorous look at nighttime fears, a delightful counting book, and an appealing story poem. The verse is crisp and childlike. Stone’s vibrant, expressive watercolor-and-pencil illustrations strike just the right balance between being scary and funny. They fill each page with motion and color. Clear Japanese characters from 1 to 10 adorn the shirts of each one. The book concludes with a pronunciation guide, background notes, and a number chart. A delightful and unique offering to fill requests for bedtime and counting books.
