Imagine that each piece of sushi is a sumo wrestler! How do they fight? Who will win? Ginger and Tea give the play-by-play for matches such as squid vs. octopus and salmon vs. salmoneggs. When the yokozuna clash, will extra fatty tuna hold out against an entire bowl of mixedseafood? Masako Ahn’s Sushi Sumo is a picture book for a Japanophile of any age.
