A ghostly graphic novel set in Japan for readers aged 12+

Take a ghostly journey through Northern Japan in search of yokai monsters and the Otherworld, told equally in manga and prose

We were captivated by this graphic novel for older readers which combines a stunning setting, beautiful manga-inspired illustrations and epic storytelling.


Abducted by spirits from his village, lost boy Akira must make the long journey in north Japan to find his family and save his young sister, before time runs out. Voyaging deeper and deeper into a Japan ‘between the worlds’, Akira and his companions encounter a host of yokai monsters and famous ghosts, discovering a sometimes comical and sometimes terrifying world of interlinked and ghostly short stories along the way.

Julian Sedgwick is the author of six books for children, and co-author of the graphic novel Dark Satanic Mills and illustrated novel Voyages in the Underworld of Orpheus Black. On the way to realising his childhood ambition to write, Julian read Chinese Studies and Philosophy at Cambridge, before working as a bookseller, painter, researcher and script developer for film and TV, and shiatsu therapist.

Chie Kutsuwada was born and brought up in Japan. A well-known figure in teaching manga in the UK, Chie went to Central Saint Martine’s for her art major and first graduated as an art major from a Japanese college before moving to London, where she continued her studies at the Royal College of Art.
