NAKED! has been translated into Japanese!

NAKED! IS IN JAPAN!!!!!! My copies of the Japanese version of Naked! just arrived, woohoooo!!!! I helped Hisakata Child create a new cover illustration and endpapers specifically for this version. Thanks to my friend John Chew for his help (and for providing some of the toys I used as models on the cover) and to Sarah Perillo and Jonathan Lyons of Curtis Brown Ltd's foreign rights team for working with Hisakata Child to get this book into Japan.

Here's the Amazon Japan link for the Japanese version of NAKED!

Here's the Hisakata Child book page for NAKED!

I was highly amused by the results of Google Translate for the Amazon page. Synopsis was translated to: "Boy coming out of the bath, you run around full of vitality do not wear anything. Even chasing mom with clothes, in the state as it is naked, pants also do not need even shirts! But, be cloak want to give a little. Recommended of the picture book to mom to have a boy." :-)
