In a sleepy village called Poi, a sunbeam appears through the leaves of a mango tree and brings to sight a little mote of dust—a dot called Obi, who has never been seen. In that moment, unnoticed and lonesome Obi finds a friend. Kyo the beagle and Obi are inseparable, till a feeling begins to stir in Obi. The feeling carries Obi on an inward journey.
Kyo and Obi is a story about discovering the joy of self-acceptance and being who you are. Through their light-hearted friendship, Kyo and Obi help us to explore our notions about closeness, similarity, and togetherness, while acknowledging our differences, and our innate need to develop a mature, accepting sense of self.
Told in a book that is made in India, from 100% recycled, sun-dried cotton paper, hand stitched by differently-abled people, the story is beautifully illustrated in line art and coloured with soy inks. The book is a gift to yourself and to others – read it, share it, pass it on, there’s only going to be a small number in print.
