Naoko Awa in Translation

By Avery Fischer Udagawa, Bangkok

SCBWI Tokyo Translation Group member Misa Dikengil Lindberg reviews The Fox’s Window and Other Stories by Naoko Awa, translated by Toshiya Kamei (UNO Press, 2009), in SWET Newsletter No. 128. As Lindberg writes, it is exciting to see this collection of Awa’s children’s stories appear in English. Awa has been compared to Beatrix Potter and Hans Christian Andersen.
