Sun and his white-tailed dog Shiro love spending their days outdoors, exploring nature together. Every year, they look forward to early fall, when shiny red apples start to grow in the orchard near their house.
While on their latest adventure, they meet a curious little creature called Polka-Dot Snake—a slithering friend who happens to love apples even more than they do.
The brilliant illustrations in the book are from a handmade process of paper cutting. The originals are cut & pasted by hand. Hiyoko works with Japanese washi paper for its natural colour palette & texture. The illustrations are made in a simple form and composition – no perfect lines nor digital effects, all hand made work.
