Description
Shima the Origami Master lives on a mountain in Japan. He isn't lonely, for his beautiful origami animals keep him company, and a warbler sings outside his window. Yet one morning Shima finds a paper elephant on his desk, simpler and better than the ones he made himself. Where could it have come from? In this poetic story for readers and listeners 4 and up, illustrated with cut paper and watercolor, Shima gains wisdom not when he solves the mystery, but instead, when he discovers the nature of things.

"For three nights, while the master is asleep, the little bird flies to his desk and folds a figure in the manner he has observed—each figure amazing the man with its simplicity and beauty. When a hiding Shima discovers the warbler at his desk, he decides to capture it in order to watch its skills firsthand, but the bird has another kind of lesson to teach him. [Nathaniel] Lachenmeyer's spare text and [Aki] Sogabe's colorful cut paper and watercolor illustrations are the perfect vehicles for this short moralistic tale.... A solid choice for discussing the importance of respecting each living creature's own space."—School Library Journal
