    Book Description
    From School Library Journal
    Grade 2-5-Two large trays of sushi claim young Atsushi's attention during a family birthday celebration, and his interest prompts his father to take him on a fact-finding tour. That Sunday, they go to their local sushi shop, where the owner suggests that they accompany him to the bustling Tsukiji Fish Market. They see tuna from all over the world and learn how fish is cut and sliced with various tools. Atsushi also sees other types of fish for sale. When they return to the shop, Mr. Kaneko prepares some sushi. An illustration on this page identifies the parts of a tuna. On following spreads, other fish and ingredients commonly used for sushi are identified. The book concludes with recipes, with the need for adult help noted. Overall, the facts are clearly presented and supported by simple, cartoonlike color illustrations. A couple of them do seem a bit silly, e.g., human faces placed alongside drawings of flatfish and flounder. Also, the history of sushi breaks off rather abruptly. Nonetheless, this title offers an interesting glimpse into Japanese culture and a wealth of information on a popular aspect of Japanese cuisine.
