Synopsis

Synopsis

On the Seesaw Bridge is a fast-paced touching tale of a fox frantically on the pursuit of a young hare.

Stuck on this seesaw bridge for what feels like an eternity the two once rivals slowly begin to open up to each other. They disclose their feelings and their history to each other. Upon learning that their lives are quite similar, and that their fate might be the same, they devise a way to get off the bridge together. However this will require utilizing the seessaw bridge's unpredictable movement to its fullest as their only hope is to be launched off the bridge before it falls into the raging river below.
Praise

Praise

"In a few short, vibrant pages, [On the Seesaw Bridge] offers a memorable lesson on perspective and cooperation, cleverly (and strikingly) packaged as a playful adventure. Looks like Japanese-titles-in-translation-boutique press Vertical, Inc. chose their first-ever children’s title just right!" - The Smithsonian's BookDragon


"Kimura allows young children to observe some real struggles involving fear, friendship, and natural instinct--and does so in a slyly humorous text that has the rhythms of another land."- American Library Association
