Born during the sunrisean auspicious beginningthe Azumas newborn son is named Hikaru, which means light. But during one play date, his mother notices that her son is slightly different from the other children. In this alternately heartwarming and bittersweet tale, a young mother tries to cope with both the overwhelming discovery of her childs autism and the trials of raising him while keeping her family together. This is a story that resonates not only for those whose families have been affected by autism, but also for all past, present, and future parents.

Author Biography

Keiko Tobe was born in Amagasaki in Hyougo, Japan. She graduated from Kwansei Gakuin University's School of Economics and took an advertising job thereafter. When her then-newlywed existence required her to move to Tokyo with her husband, she began working as a mangaka's assistant and eventually became a mangaka herself. Though she has published numerous (primarily mystery-oriented) manga through Akita Shoten, which also published her 1986 Princess magazine debut, Hikari to tomo ni... is universally considered her masterwork. Hikari began its serialization in Akita Shoten's For Mrs. magazine in 2000 and continues to be serialized today, with the compiled volumes currently published up to Vol. 10. Tobe-sensei lives in Japan with her husband and two sons.
