Description: Yuko-chan is an adventurous blind orphan who is able to do amazing things. She confronts a temple burglar in the dead of night and crosses treacherous mountain passes to deliver food to hungry people. During her travels, Yuko-chan trips and tumbles down a snowy cliff. As she waits for help she discovers a strange thing. Her tea gourd, regardless of how she drops it, always lands right-side-up. The tea has frozen in the bottom of the gourd! Inspired by this, she creates the famous Daruma doll toy, which rights itself when tipped--a true symbol of resilience. Thanks to her invention, the villagers are able to earn a living and feed themselves by selling the dolls. Yuko-chan never gave up, no matter the obstacles she faced, and the Daruma doll is a lovely reminder of this. 2012 8.5 x 10.5 32 pp. Ages 5 - 8.
