IBNA: Michio Mado is a Japanese poet. He was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1994.
Mado was born as Michio Ishida in Tokuyama, Yamaguchi prefecture. He spent his childhood with his grandfather because his parents went to work in Taiwan. Later he joined his family there. He graduated from the School of Industrial Instruction in Taipei and then worked for the Office of the Governor-General.
After returning to Japan in 1946 at the age of 37, Mado worked for about ten years as an editor for a children’s magazine, and then became a freelancer, writing mostly children’s songs for a living, but also working on poems for himself. From his mid 50s, Mado developed a passion for painting as well. He has published numerous books of poetry and children’s verse, and been awarded with many prestigious literary prizes.
“The Animals”, released in 1990, is among his credits. The book is a Japanese-English bilingual edition with the English translations by Empress Michiko.
