Sano Yoko


An illustration from Christmas in WWII by Sano Yoko published in 1997 by Akane Shobo. Sano Yoko (1938–2010)  was born in Beijing, China, she studied printmaking in Berlin and settled in Japan becoming a very successful author illustrator of children's books. This work reminds me of Allan Ahlberg's 'The Run Away Dinner' of 2006.
