Rate this:
Jiro and his grandmother are poor, but very happy -- until Jiro's grandmother falls ill. She asks Jiro to take the last of their rice to the village to sell it so that he may buy medicine. But being just a little boy, Jiro loses the rice along the way. What follows is a magical, mysterious adventure in which young Jiro discovers the rich rewards of duty, trust, and generosity. Richly hued and deftly told, Jiro's Pearl honors the courage of a child as it evokes old Japan.
