100 Tales from the Tokyo Ghost Cafe

From a Carnegie-shortlisted author and illustrator duo comes a stunning companion to Tsunami Girl – a wonderful collection of ghost stories told equally in manga and prose.

Abducted by spirits from his village, lost boy Akira must make the long journey in northern Japan to find his family and save his young sister before time runs out. Voyaging deeper and deeper into a Japan ‘between the worlds’, Akira and his companions encounter a host of yokai monsters and famous ghosts, discovering a sometimes comical and sometimes terrifying world of interlinked and ghostly short stories along the way.
