Nieves’ first collaboration dates back to 2004 with her Zine Kaguya, the bamboo princess, which then lead to the publication of Rabbit and Turtle, together with Japanese publisher Happa-no-Kofu in 2005. Rabbit and Turtle is Miyagi’s own adaptation of Aesop’s fable The Tortoise and the Hare.

Full-page drawings unfold one after another in this captivating, picture-book, tangibly carrying the lively, childlike style of artist Yukari Miyagi.
