The second book in the Sumo series and I definitely hope that the author makes more of these! Because these are just so much fun!
The previous book was all about opposites, in this one it is all about numbers! From one sumo wrestler having a big dream to eight wrestlers in a big bath. I had so much fun seeing what the little wrestlers were up to and was constantly curious what would be next. I loved seeing the many things that they were doing.
In this one we don’t just learn numbers. Oh no! We also learn some Japanese words that are interspersed in the little sentences that each page has. The numbers are all already explained in both romaji and written language. The words, well of these are often easily deduced from the pictures, but at the end of the book we get some more explanation on what the word means. I was quite happy that we learn so much in a fun packed book. Not just normal numbers (one two three), but also Japanese numbers (ichi, ni, san) and words.
The art? The style is just as good as the first book and I really love seeing what those sumo wrestlers are up to!
All in all, give us more sumo wrestlers books! There are still topics that can be done, so I would love to see them! I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
