Big Book: The Giant Turnip


Immerse yourself with your eyes, ears and whole body

The Big Book is precisely that - a children’s story that literally unfolds into a gigantic single sheet, revealing a beautiful illustration of something central to the story. The redesigned children’s fairy tale adds another dimension to interactive storytelling, allowing kids to explore a story as if they are inside it.

Fujimoto’s beautiful illustrations are accompanied by text in both Japanese and English. So not only is it great for storytelling, it’s also useful for learning another language!

The Giant Turnip is the beloved Russian fairy tale about a grandfather who plants a turnip that grows so large that he cannot pull it up himself.
