The story of a boy whose dream of becoming a sumo wrestler is interrupted by WWII. Besides being a delicate and personal story about engaging characters, it is rich with the fascinating details of Japanese traditional culture around Sumo wrestling, Noh theater and day to day life-and to see WWII from the various points of view of the Japanese. Frankly, I would never have wagered that I'd find myself so utterly compelled by a story with sumo wrestling as the central thread. ~ Reviewed by Heather Bellanca
