Benji, Yumi, Origami! ベンジーとユミのおりがみ


Written by Emily Lim-Leh  |  Illustrated by Kazumi Wilds  |  Translated by Yumiko Fukumoto

His squirrels turned out crooked.
His lobsters had crushed claws.
His dinosaurs were out of shape.

"I can't get anything right!" Benji cried. "I give up!"

When Benji receives an origami book, he tries hard to fold the paper animals. But he fails to get them right and gives up - until his neighbour Yumi shows him a surprising way to look at his creations. Their special friendship unfolds in a delightful story that readers will enjoy again and again.
