Those picture books with my translation published this winter have been available at National Diet Library Tokyo as well. Many many thanks. Hope the library patrons, especially the ones who are in the middle of child-raising, engaged in basic English and Japanese education, will enjoy them and the books will meet lots of new friends.

Once Upon a Time in Venice バッド・ウェイヴ

A Los Angeles detective seeks out the ruthless gang that stole his dog. Bruce Willis(ブルース・ウィリス), who is most famous for his "Die Hard" series and probably one of the best action hero in cinema history, returns and he's as cheeky and charming as ever. Even if you are not Die Hard Bruce fans, it's good fun and worth a viewing.

Porto ポルト

Two outsiders in the northerly Portuguese city of Porto experienced a brief connection. A mystery remains about the moments they shared, and in searching through memories, they relive the depths of a night uninhibited by the consequences of time. A wonderful actor who died way too young, Anton Yelchin(アントン・イェルチン)is outstanding as a broken-heart man. The film shows love and connection in a painful yet very elegant and poignant way, so it feels real and deeply sad and simply beautiful.

 I joined "Kittens' story time", a read-aloud session hosted by "The Wildcat Translation Club of Children's Books" today, and was lucky enough to be able to read aloud some wonderful picture books in front of such adorable little book lovers at Ikebukuro Junkudo children's books section, such a hear-warming and beautiful urban oasis in the middle of Tokyo. Many many thanks for such a wonderful opportunity. Good boys and girls who love picture books, please come and join us.

Same Kind of Different as Me 奇跡の絆

Such a powerful and touching film based on the true story covering many difficult subjects in a very beautiful way. Renee Zellweger(レニー・ゼルウィガー)'s story is told through the eyes of her art dealer's husband, Greg Kinnear(グレッグ・キニア)and heavily involves a homeless person, Djimon Hounsou(ジャイモン・フンスー)who we get to know as the film unfolds. Great racial strife and emotional scenes are seen through flashbacks, and all three character arcs are moving and fleshed out amazingly well.

Lucy the Cat in Tokyo 2 ねこのルーシー とうきょうへいく 2

"Lucy the Cat in Tokyo 2" with my translation has been published this week. This is a picture book written from such an adorable cat (Sacred Birman), Lucy's point of view with lots of humor. Continuing from the 8th series, Lucy tells about her Tokyo stay in the 9th. We can enjoy some well-known touristic scenes in Tokyo such as Aqua City and Rainbow Bridge in Odaiba, Shinagawa Aquarium, Ueno Park, National Diet Library, Government Building, also her bizarre dreams such as knocking down Tokyo Tower and appearing on a sumo ring with some wrestlers, plus even her enjoyable moments during the tea ceremony and flower arrangement. I sincerely hope both children and adults can enjoy this very charming Lucy's world both in English and in Japanese.
今週、翻訳いたしました『ねこのルーシー とうきょうへいく 2』が出版されました。なんとも愛らしいバーマン猫、ルーシーの視点から見た世界が、ユーモアたっぷりに描かれた絵本。シリーズ9巻目では、ルーシーは8巻目に引き続き、東京滞在について話します。お台場のアクアシティやレインボーブリッジ、しながわ水族館、上野公園、国立国会図書館、都庁ビルといった東京の名物観光シーンや、東京タワーを倒したり、お相撲さんと土俵に現われたりする突拍子もない夢、さらには茶道や生け花を楽しむ様子など、とってもチャーミングなルーシー・ワールドを、英語と日本語のバイリンガルで子供も大人もお楽しみいただければ幸甚です。

The Circle ザ・サークル

Former Hermione, Emma Watson(エマ・ワトソン)leads the film as she is hired to work for the world's largest and most powerful tech and social media company while a creepy fact, i.e. a large percentage of humanity could be tricked by propaganda so easily, is well shown in the charismatic leader of the organization played by Tom Hanks(トム・ハンクス), who is smart, funny, down-to-earth, very likable,  such a charismatic presence, and was the perfect choice for the role.

Jungle ジャングル ギンズバーグ19日間の軌跡

Yossi Ghinsberg(ヨッシー・ギンズバーグ)played by Daniel Raddcliffe(ダニエル・ラドクリフ)trades out the Dark Forest of Hogwarts for the Amazon. In his Mr Potter days he was ingenuous, but there was a glimmer of something in this film. The tale is told from the perspective of Yossi, an Israeli explorer. The cast is actually very good, and the movie is extremely dependent on Radcliffe's performance which is outstanding.

The author, being a math teacher for 35 years in high school, and a mother of four children (twins - a son & daughter) and grandmother of five (twin grandchildren - a boy & girl) has written a lot of books for which she has used her imagination on her experiences with the twins.
