More About the Author

Keiko Kasza was born on a small Japanese island in the Inland Sea of Japan. She grew up in a typical Japanese extended family with her parents, two brothers, and grandparents. Uncles, aunts, and cousins also lived nearby. "All the steps I took growing up were very normal," Ms. Kasza says. "The only unusual thing I did was go to college in the United States." She graduated with a degree in graphic design from California State University at Northridge. Ms. Kasza married an American, and the United States has been her home ever since.After publishing five children's books in Japan and working as a graphic designer for fourteen years, Ms. Kasza decided in 1988 to devote her time to picture books. She says, "Having two small boys and two professions was too much to handle."Ms. Kasza admires many great picture-book creators, such as Leo Lionni and Maurice Sendak, but says that the work of Arnold Lobel has influenced her the most. The subtle humor and warmth he created in his books continues to inspire me," she says. "I often go back to his work when I get discouraged or lose confidence."Ms. Kasza compares the process of making a book to acting on stage under the lights:"I become the character that I'm working on at that moment. I pretend that I'm a bird looking for a mother, or a pig trying to impress his girlfriend. When I'm acting, I'm a child myself."Ms. Kasza's ambition is not to create a hundred books, but to "create one really good book that will be kept on the family bookshelves for generations, although a hundred really good books would be even better, of course!"Keiko Kasza lives in Indiana with her husband and two sons.

I have yet to be disappointed by one of her books. From the first time I saw her at a Library or Reading Convention where tons of teachers were lined up for her "signing" I was hooked and so are the kids with whom I share all, and I mean all, of her books.

This book is great for all ages. Like most books written by Keiko Kasza, this book has it's own awesomeness! This author is amazing with her unique ideas, she is my favorite children's author. I bought many of her books and after reading this one from the library, I ordered it too at Amazon. I just need to have them for life, and for the next generations. I highly recomend Keiko Kasza's books to all children and all people actually. I love them as much as my children love them. My favorite books are: "Silly Goose's Big Story", "My Lucky Day", "Don't Laugh, Joe!", Badger's Fancy Meal", "The Mightiest", "A Mother for Choco".
