Red Knit Cap Girl to the Rescue

By Naoko Stoop (Electronic Book, 2013)
'I hope it's not too far away,' says Red Knit Cap Girl. 'Follow the light of the Moon,' calls Owl.

Determined to help him find his way home, to an Arctic land of ice and snow, Red Knit Cap Girl, White Bunny, and Polar Bear Cub set off on an unforgettable voyage. Gorgeously illustrated on wood grain, Red Knit Cap Girl's curiosity, imagination, and joy will captivate the hearts of readers young and old. Simple prose and luminous pictures will remind readers that even small actions - such as recycling - can help to solve big world problems, in this inspiring story that celebrates friendship, bravery, and the importance of home.

Naoko Stoop's love of drawing began when she was a young child growing up in Japan. Naoko now lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York. She uses found materials including plywood and brown paper bags as her canvas. Naoko has shown her work in a variety of galleries and stores in New York and hopes that, through her artwork, she can inspire the child within everyone.
