Biographical Sketch

Mitsumasa Anno was born March 20, 1926, in Tsuwano, Japan. In 1948, he graduated from the Yamaguchi Teacher Training College and taught at elementary schools for over a decade, all the while being a reputable artist in children's literature. The lists of awards for Anno is lengthy, including New York Times"Best Illustrated Books of the Year" citation in 1970, 1975, and 1982, "Notable Book" citations, "Brooklyn Art Books for Children" citations, and the Hans Christian Andersen Illustrator Medal. Anno is widely crowned one of the most accomplished picture-book artists of children's literature, incorporating his flare for mathematics and science into visual trickery and illusions throughout his pieces. His appreciation of diverse cultures also takes high precedence in a series of acclaimed "journey" books, entailing his travels all around the world. Immortalizing over 30 works of illustrations, Anno is a celebrated contributor to the world of children's literature.
