Ever eat udon? Good. Ever read a children’s book? Good. I’m assuming then you’ve thought about the brilliant collaboration the two could possibly have. I introduce you to the popular children’s book うどんのうーやん (Udon Uyan). A loving and heartwarming tale of a young boy on his mission to create delicious udon? Nooooo…
The story of a giant bowl of udon and his quest to live like a human being. Yessss…
Let’s look at a few pages of this action packed adventure.
Due to a lack of workers udon has to go help!
Having to cross a river.
On a swing set.
Pouring extremely hot soup all over himself…
Fighting a bird.
Imagine yourself sitting on this bench, and out of nowhere…
But won’t everyone now want a bowl of the living udon? Yes. And you can make one yourself:
I’m sold. This is the story my inner child has been waiting for.
And bonus for you who noticed: it’s a children’s book written in Osaka dialect.
