Summary Part fantasy, part travelogue--this graphic novels transports readers to the intersection of the natural and supernatural worlds. Onibi: Diary of a Yokai Ghost Hunter follows the adventures of two young foreigners as they travel to a remote and mysterious corner of Japan. Along the way, they purchase an old camera that has the unique ability to capture images of Japan's invisible spirit world. Armed with their magical camera, they explore the countryside and meet people who tell them about the forgotten ghosts, ghouls and demons who lie in wait ready to play tricks on them. These Yokai, or supernatural beings, are sometimes kind, sometimes mischievous, and sometimes downright dangerous! Readers ages 10--18 who cherish books like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, A Wrinkle in Time and Tuttle's Diary of a Tokyo Teen will delight in this graphic novel adventure. The comic book format will appeal to anime and manga fans while introducing the ancient spirit world that is such an important part of Japanese culture.
