Totto Chan: The Little Girl at the Window
"This engaging series of childhood recollections tells about an ideal
school in Tokyo during World War II that combined learning with fun,
freedom, and love. This unusual school had old railroad cars for
classrooms, and it was run by an extraordinary man--its founder and
headmaster, Sosaku Kobayashi--who was a firm believer in freedom of
expression and activity. In real life, the Totto-chan of the book has
become one of Japan's most popular television personalities--Tetsuko
Kuroyanagi. She attributes her success in life to this wonderful school
and its headmaster.The charm of this account has won the hearts of
millions of people of all ages and made this book a runaway bestseller
in Japan, with sales hitting the 4.5 million mark in its first year."
