Have you ever heard of Kadono Eiko? She will get the Hans Christian Andersen Award this year. People call this the Nobel Prize for children’s books. She has written many children’s books, but most people know her because of “Kiki’s Delivery Service.” It is Kadono’s best known book. It’s about a girl who is a half-witch. She can ride a broom and has a black cat named Jiji. After she leaves home, she makes a living delivering things on her broom. Kadono has written at least five more books about Kiki. Actually, I have never read any of the books, but I have seen the movie by Miyazaki Hayao. (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
