Biographie de l'auteur

Keiko Kasza was born on a small Japanese island in the Inland Sea of Japan. She grew up in a typical Japanese extended family with her parents, two brothers, and grandparents. Uncles, aunts, and cousins also lived nearby. "All the steps I took growing up were very normal," Ms. Kasza says. "The only unusual thing I did was go to college in the United States." She graduated with a degree in graphic design from California State University at Northridge. Ms. Kasza married an American, and the United States has been her home ever since.

After publishing five children's books in Japan and working as a graphic designer for fourteen years, Ms. Kasza decided in 1988 to devote her time to picture books. She says, "Having two small boys and two professions was too much to handle."

Ms. Kasza admires many great picture-book creators, such as Leo Lionni and Maurice Sendak, but says that the work of Arnold Lobel has influenced her the most. The subtle humor and warmth he created in his books continues to inspire me," she says. "I often go back to his work when I get discouraged or lose confidence."

Ms. Kasza compares the process of making a book to acting on stage under the lights:
"I become the character that I'm working on at that moment. I pretend that I'm a bird looking for a mother, or a pig trying to impress his girlfriend. When I'm acting, I'm a child myself."

Ms. Kasza's ambition is not to create a hundred books, but to "create one really good book that will be kept on the family bookshelves for generations, although a hundred really good books would be even better, of course!"

Keiko Kasza lives in Indiana with her husband and two sons.

Simple, Exciting & Funny 12 septembre 2000
Par Paul Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is a great book for 3-7 year-olds. It is story that little ones will find interesting and funny, combined with good illustrations, and can be read in under 5 minutes!
Children will follow the Wolf as he searches the forest for a delicious chicken. Before seizing a chicken he finds, he decides to fatten her up first. So he spends the next few nights in the kitchen baking goodies and anomymously leaving them on her porch for the chicken to eat. Finally he decides to set out for his chicken dinner, only to discover that the Chicken had many, many children that had been eating the food the wolf had left. All of them thanked "Uncle Wolf" with a hundred kisses, and the wolf, in the end, grows attached to the little chicks.

Charming wolf just can't be a bad guy. 2 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I loved this book! My son received it for his 4th birthday, and I enjoy it as much, or more, than he does. The charming wolf, a wanna-be bad guy, goes to extraordinary measures to fatten up a chicken for dinner. An appealing aspect to this book is that the characters are expressive, good- natured, and non-threatening. A very young child can enjoy this book without fear of "scary" parts. I would like to get in touch with the author to inquire about purchasing prints of some of the illustrations, as my son and daughter are so taken with the pictures. I have purchased this book for other children, and look forward to seeing more of Keiko Kasza's work. (If anyone knows how I can reach the author, I would appreciate your input.)

A great read-aloud for preschoolers! 16 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I highly recommend this to anyone reading aloud to preschoolers. I have read it to countless groups of young children over the past ten years, in many different situations, and it never fails as a crowd-pleaser. Keiko Kasza's other picture books also work like magic with the youngest listeners. Children and adults alike enjoy her gentle humor.

Before Kasza went electric 20 octobre 2005
Par E. R. Bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
With all the wonderful picture books out there for children, it seems silly to say that children need only one book on such n' such a topic. Unfortunately, that's sometimes how my little mind works. Take, for example, this book. Now I had been familiar with the amazingly funny and well-written, "My Lucky Day" by Keiko Kasza. What I didn't know was that almost ten years before its publication, Kasza preceded her modern-day classic with something called, "The Wolf's Chicken Stew". Intrigued by other works by this author/illustrator, I decided to seek out this earlier work. After all, "The Wolf's Chicken Stew" appears on the New York Public Library's list of 100 Picture Books Everyone Should Know. Unfortunately, my reaction was akin to those fans who listen to an artist's mature works and then go back to that same artist's earlier (and weaker) material. Using almost exactly the same formula that would later appear in "My Lucky Day", Kasza tries to send up the classic predator/prey fight for supremacy with a twist at the end. But instead of knowing laughs, we're left with a sweet but weak finish.

Says the book, "There once lived a wolf who loved to eat more than anything else in the world". Some of us can sympathize. When he spots a lone chicken ah-walkin' in the woods one day, the wolf sets his heart on a delicious chicken stew. Just the same, he can't deny that the chicken is a scrawny critter. One that undoubtedly needs some fattening up. So off the wolf goes to bake some tasty treats to fill the chicken's belly. He whips up 100 pancakes, 100 doughnuts, and "a scrumptious cake weighing a hundred pounds". Each gift is left on the chicken's doorstep and when he believes the time is right, the wolf peers into bird's home only to be welcome by a still thin chicken. The reason for this is clear enough. It appears that Ms. Chicken has quite a brood of young. The baby chicks thank the wolf profusely and instead of popping them in his mouth, the soft-hearted fellow finds himself charmed and thinking about possibly baking them a hundred scrumptious cookies in the future. The last shot in the book is of a basket filled with cookies and various fluffy chicks vying for a treat.

The ending is unexpected and kids will love the abrupt turnaround the wolf goes through. He starts out snarky and ends up a softy. Kids love it when supposedly "bad" characters go through this kind of redemption. I was impressed especially with Kasza's grasp of subtle words and phrases that dot this book. You don't find the term "scrumptious" in every book (though you probably should) and certainly not in the ones that come from authors that are just as comfortable writing in Japanese as they are English. The illustrations compliment the text beautifully. The wolf is both menacing and oddly fuzzy. Even when he is mere steps away from the oblivious fowl in his pounce position, you never really fear that he's gonna go through with it. Kasza shades and details her pictures with delightful watercolors. You can detect shadows in the wolf's thick fur and every last doughnut is nicely rounded.

Of course, I much prefer "My Lucky Day". THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is an example of picture book brilliance. Just the same, there's a lot to be said for "The Wolf's Chicken Stew". It's fun and funny to the kiddies and has all the makings of a fine family classic. Definitely a pick that would be better for younger picture book readers than older ones. A good readaloud to groups of little ones as well.

Easy and Fun 11 décembre 2000
Par Brenda Stapp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This terrific book says alot with few words. The watercolor pictures are beautiful, and the text is carefully written. We adore the picture of the wolf carrying a 100 pound cake to fatten up the chicken before he eats her. The ending is so sweet it leaves you feeling like life is great. I consider this one of my favorite read alouds.
