My Hand




Everyone will high five for hands in this deceptively simple celebration by award winning author and artist Satoshi Kitamura.

This is my hand. It can do all sorts of things. Most of the time it does good things, but sometimes…
Kitamura introduces us to the wonders of something as simple as your hand – it can push, it can pull. It can paint, it can pat. And when your hand has a bad habit, it can pick your nose!
Award-winning author and illustrator Satoshi Kitamura unfolds a wonderful celebration of the simple hand, also starring a favourite Kitamura character, Boots the cat.
