About This Book
A semi-autobiographical novel by Akiyuki Nosaka, Hotaru No Haka (Grave of the Fireflies) tells the tragic story of 14-year old Seita and his 4-year old sister, Setsuko.
In the aftermath of a World War II bombing, two orphaned children struggle to survive in the Japanese countryside. To Seita and his four-year old sister, the helplessness and indifference of their countrymen is even more painful than the enemy raids. Through desperation, hunger and grief, these children's lives are as heartbreakingly fragile as their spirit and love is inspiring. Grave of the Fireflies is a tale of the true tragedy of war and innocence lost, not only of the abandoned young, but of an entire nation. This books includes 100 or so animation still frames by Isao Takahata.
