    [synopsis] => With the help of a magical friend, a young girl searches for her missing father in this poignant story set during Japanese Canadian incarceration in World War II.
	It's a week until Mira's birthday, and she's getting worried. Where is Papa? He has never missed her birthday before. When Mira's friend Baku, a creature from Japanese folklore, offers to help, they journey over farmlands and forests, mountains and river mouths, gathering clues to Papa's whereabouts-clues that echo Mira's memories and overheard conversations in the camp where she lives with Mama.
	Lushly illustrated by up-and-coming illustrator Michelle Theodore, this tender, moving picture book by debut author Sara Truuvert explores the profound impacts of family separation and the different forms comfort can take for a child processing loss.
	Further reading on Japanese Canadian and Japanese American internment and a note from the author add to readers' understanding of this underrepresented period of history, making it an instant classic. For fans of Baseball Saved Us, Mira and Baku is an emotional exploration of the power of imagination and hope in difficult times. 
	SARA TRUUVERT is a Canadian author of Japanese-Estonian descent. She grew up in Toronto and now lives in Ottawa, where she writes everything from short fiction to poetry to science articles. Mira and Baku is her first picture book.

	MICHELLE THEODORE is an illustrator born and raised under the prairie skies in Edmonton, Alberta. As a landlocked yonsei, she is often reminiscing about coastal summers with family, inspired by her times on beaches collecting sand dollars and eating homemade salmon jerky. 
	POWER OF IMAGINATION: the story explores the power of imagination in helping children process grief and trauma while holding space for hope and adventure.
	HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE: explores an important part of history in North America that is underrepresented.
	BACKMATTER EXTRAS: backmatter includes an author's note and historical resources
	DEBUT AUTHOR: this is Sara Truuvert's debut picture book!
	EDUCATOR'S GUIDE: Free resources will be available for download at AnnickPress.com, and in Edelweiss, BookManager, Catalist
