Misuzu Kaneko has been translated into 10 languages, but has yet to be introduced in the English-speaking world… until now.

Are You an Echo? is a children’s picture by and book about one of Japan’s best loved children’s poets.  Containing both a short retelling of Misuzu’s tragic life story and a selection of her poetry, it was created by a tri-national team from the US, Canada and Japan in order to bring Misuzu’s poetry to a larger audience world-wide.
