Editorial Reviews

Reviews of Sleepless Kao's previous titles:"I've been a fan of Kao's art pieces since more than a decade ago...Monchan is a character who you can count on." - Hirokazu Yasuhara, a Game DesignerThis simple story about a little stuffed doll, Monchan, and his owner, Bluie, grows on the reader after a few readings and is enhanced by some additional research into the world of the author and illustrator, Sleepless Kao, whose real name is Kaori Kasai. Kaori is a Japanese visual artist whose world is populated with whimsical characters.    The story explores the world of bags, in all shapes and sizes, as well as their contents. It is told with humour and is accompanied by detailed small drawings, using mixed media, and collage, including fabric, paintings and photos. The images of the bags and the items inside include a variety of objects, with their names clearly labelled and identified on each page, making it an ideal way for young readers to learn new words.” - CM Magazine "Visual artist Kaori Kasai's world is populated with whimsical creatures, large-eyed children and androgynous characters. Her painting and drawings create short vignettes dealing with friendship, alienation, emotional boundaries and our interactions with our physical environment." - The Bulletin: a journal of Japanese Canadian community, history & culture, March 2010
