this week came a lovely parcel from Miho Utsugi, a japanese elementary school teacher/children’s book author/character designer/the creator of マスク小學校(Mask Elementry School)/all round nice friend! such a long title huh?!
I dig contemporary picture books with creative characters, Miho’s work caught my attention from the first day she added me on facebook, her doodles of masked characters, miniatures put into a diorama, she even made a life size chickenmask costume(its still a mystery who’s inside chickenmask costume hehe)! and i just cant resist to check out her daily updates, full of surprises! anyways, let’s see what she got….
children’s books based on mask elementary school, you can see her heart and souls put into this! they are one of those picture books that’s enjoyable for all ages! *highly recommended* however, it’s gonna take sometime for me to read & fully understand the story(in japanese), bout’ time to pick up my forgotten あ-い-う-え-お again :P
jealous?! you can also have a piece of Miho, her books are available through japanese amazon, grab your チキンマスク(Chicken Mask) or マスク小學校 サメマスク(Mask Elementary School – Shark Mask) now!! and if you ever bump into chickenmask on the streets of japan, make sure you give him/her a big hug ;)
