Author(s): Yoshitomo Nara
Yoshitomo Nara, one of the most popular contemporary artists in the world, is at the forefront of a wave of Japanese artists whose work exuberantly erases the line between pop culture and fine art. In his first book for children, Nara tells the charming story of a puppy so large that no one notices him - until a determined little girl climbs high enough to meet him and become his friend. A sweet tale from an artist for whom childhood holds a magical appeal. "The Lonesome Puppy" is a delight not only for young readers but also for Nara's legion of adult fans.
Yoshitomo Nara's paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in 15 countries; his work is held in public and private collections around the world.
