Hosoe continues with the theme of an ‘artificial reality’ in this beautiful children’s book, his first of three collaborations with the American writer Betty Jean Lifton. This is a beautifully illustrated children's book about a dog called Runcible who digs his way from Cape Cod to Japan to meet Taka-chan, a little girl. Together they go to have adventures around her house and in Tokyo. “Runcible is a firm believer in international understanding. 'The world would be a better place if more dogs would travel.' he says.” (About the Author). (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
