Tiny and brave—these are the two most striking characteristics of Issun Bôshi. His mother had longed to have a child for so many years that she finally added “even if it is a very small one” to her wish. When the elderly couple did in fact bear a son, he turned out to be only one inch high. He was thus called Issun Bôshi, Japanese for one-inch boy.

Although his parents raised him very lovingly, Issun Bôshi realized one day that he would not grow any taller. He then left his home to set off on a jour­ney to find his place in the world. Because he saw himself as a swordfighter, a samurai, he made sure to take along the right equipment: a needle was his sword, a soup bowl was his boat, and a chopstick was its rudder.

As in any proper fairy tale, Issun Bôshi is tested in several adventures. He handles himself so bravely that, in the end, he is rewarded with just the right princess.

Icinori are Mayumi Otero and Raphaël Urwiller. Mayumi Otero is a French illustrator of children’s books whose drawings and etchings are often playfully ironic. Her colleague Raphaël Urwiller is a graphic designer and illustrator who works for news­papers and magazines in addition to creating children’s books. Together, Otero and Urwiller designed Issun Bôshi in a style reminiscent of Asia.
