Based on the Book written by Kobi Yamada

Illustrated by Mae Besom

“One day, I had an idea...” We had an idea as well—to create a brand-new musical based on the award-winning book by Kobi Yamada and Mae Besom. This spring our idea will unfurl on our main stage. What do you do with an idea? the boy asks, and at first, it seems the best thing to do is ignore it. But, then, as it won’t be ignored, he nurtures it and it grows, and despite doubts and fears of what others might think, it continues to grow, until one day the answer becomes abundantly clear.

What Do You Do with An Idea by Kobi Yamada is produced with permission of the publisher, Compendium, Inc.
