Living in Ohio, I don't have much occasion to be scared of giant waves, but this one has some very vivid, mind-bending illustrations -- the torn paper is perfect for this. Ojiisan, the oldest and wealthiest man in his Japanese village, feels one day that "something is not right." There is a small earthquake, and from his house on the mountain, he sees the sea running away from the land. Ojiisan knows what is coming, but all of the curious villagers have already run out onto the newly-formed beach. Can he do anything to save them?
