About this product
- DescriptionThe Japanese believe that until the age of three, children are gods, each one a 'Lord Child'. On their third birthday they fall from grace and join the rest of humanity. Narrated by a child - from the age of two and a half up until her third birthday - this vel reveals that the move from deity to ordinary member of the human race can be a very difficult thing indeed from which to recover.
