When Yoko was little, she had everything she could dream of in Japan, except time with her busy parents. She used to write wishes and tie them to the branches of the trees in the local temple to be less alone. When war broke out, Yoko was often hungry and had to use her imagination to transport her. After the war, she made her way to New York to meet free spirits and study art. She worked as artist, and hosted gatherings with her trailblazing friends, and then one day, John Lennon came to see her work. And together, they imagined a better world. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the climate artist's life.
