Issa is the greatest bonsai master in all of Japan. With his special bonsai techniques, he can make trees stay small & perfectly shaped. His wife Kyomi is skilled in the arts of painting & weaving, so their lives are filled with beauty. But something is missing: They have no children. One day, they receive an unusual gift, an orphan bear cub. They fall in love with the little bear & name him Doukeshi. Since the Emperor forbids keeping wild animals, Issa uses bonsai techniques to prevent the tiny bear from growing. Kyomi wants Doukeshi to grow so he can run freely in the forest. But Issa loves him too much to let him go. The God of Bears visits Issa in a dream & shows him that the greatest love is allowing Doukeshi to return to the wild. Illus. Ages 4+.
