I finally got my copy of Naomi Kojima's book, Singing Shijimi Clams, published by Kane/Miller Book Publishers. She did a great job writing and illustrating this cute story. It's about a witch who wants to make miso soup with clams. She gets clams, but thinks they are too cute to eat. I read a review that said her clams had the sweetest faces. I couldn't wait to see them. I agree with the review. Maybe you'd like to see them, too. Check your local library or bookseller. It's a really good book.
