My grandma lives alone and she has a persimmon tree. When autumn arrived, she found that someone had been stealing and eating her persimmons. She found large and small footprints near the tree, from strong wild boars to lively deer, to little mice… Grandma struggles with all kinds of imaginary animals, and her life becomes lively as she is engaged in finding all possible ways to protect her persimmon. Finally, she succeeded in driving away all the animals. She was very happy. However, she was a little disappointed and felt lonely after that.
At the end of the story, Grandma decided to offer a kind gesture, leaving all the remaining persimmons to these uninvited guests. She felt happy again.
This book is illustrated with creative ink superimposed textures such as clothes, wool, paper cuts etc., combining traditional techniques with modern craftsmanship.
