about

The tender relationship between the boy and his stuffed rabbit shines through gorgeous, luminous illustrations, transporting adult readers into the world of childhood while giving children a picture of themselves. In her retelling of The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, Komako Sakai''s text flows beautifully with her evocative, color-saturated illustrations. Written in gentle tones, the text resonates with the tender relationship between the boy and his toy rabbit. And, as always, Sakai''s sensitive illustrations succeed in an absolute sense in evoking the interior world of the child, with all of its playful energy and poignant solitude. Her depictions of child and rabbit are memorable and may well become part of our collective, culturalmemory of Williams'' original book. Sakai''s text is simpler than Williams'', allowing her illustrations to convey much that is left unsaid, making for a fine integrity between word and image. Komako Sakai was born in Hyogo, Japan. After graduating from Tokyo''s National University of Fine Arts and Music, Sakai worked at a kimono textile design company. She is currently one of the most popular authors and illustrators in Japan. She is well known in the United States for In the Meadow, Emily''s Balloon, and The Snow Day .
