Review & giveaway 11: Comic Japan

12 Mar

Here is another review of a book and giveaway from Tuttle Books!

(There is still time to enter in the drawing for a free copy of Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics & Culture.)

The next book that I’m am reviewing is titled “Comic Japan: Best of Zero Gravity Cartoons from The Japan Times-The Lighter Side of Tokyo Life” by Roger Dahl.

Roger Dahl’s Comic Japan: Best of Zero Gravity Cartoons from The Japan Times-The Lighter Side of Tokyo Life

I will put the details of the free drawing for this book at the end of this post.

Mr. Dahl is an American cartoonist who taught English and draws a comic strip for the English-language newspaper “The Japan Times” titled “Zero Gravity“.

This book is a collection of some of his best strips from the Zero Gravity comic.

If you are, have been or are interested in becoming an expat (especially one in Japan), this book will interest you.
Actually, you will like this book if you’re interested in life in Japan at all…even if you never even visited here.

Comic Japan: Best of Zero Gravity Cartoons from The Japan Times-The Lighter Side of Tokyo Life” is about the life of an American couple who are in Tokyo to teach English and how they interact with Japanese neighbors, co-workers and customs.

Comic Japan: Best of Zero Gravity Cartoons from The Japan Times-The Lighter Side of Tokyo Life” can be purchased through Amazon here.

But, as I said above, Tuttle Books has agreed to give (given) one random visitor to my blog a free copy of this book.

To enter the drawing for the free book, submit this form by 2015 March 22nd:

***** Updated March 22nd, 2015 *****

This special promo ended on 2015 March 22nd. One random winner was selected and contacted directly by Tuttle Publishers (via email) with the details about the free book.

Thank you to all who entered, but only the winner was contacted.

    Love this book! I have a bunch of children’s books about Japan for my daughters…it helped them to understand the culture while living here before and was a good refresher this time around.

    I wonder if Roger Dahl has any relation to Roald Dahl…

      I don’t think so. Roald Dahl was British. Roger Dahl is American.

        Oh, OK. Roald Dahl had a lot of kids and worked in the States after being in the military, so I thought that maybe one of his relatives would go there. Aw, well. Glad to have another Dahl in the book game.

        Sorry, I should’ve been more clear. I don’t think that they’re related. It’s just my assumption..so, they could actually be.
        I didn’t know that Roald Dahl lived in the U.S.
