Joh Sasaki, winner of the 2010 Naoki Award, releases an unpublished poem as an e-book for the iPad. Sasaki received the142nd Naoki Award in January 2010, for his novel Silent Devastation (Haikyo-ni-kou). He is well-known for his police stories and historical novels. He has been creating these in Hokkaido, where he was born. The Circus Fire is his only poem for children. Written a few years ago, it had not been published. Miho Sasaki, an illustrator who is active in Hokkaido, has illustrated this poem, and La Zone, a Hokkaido-based bal-musette band has provided original music. The poem was convented to iPad format and released from Hokkaido to the world. [Message from the author] The Circus Fire was inspired by a personal experience. I'm sure that many people from Sapporo who are older than I am remember the fire. It happened in June 1959. The circus caught fire during the Sapporo Festival. I was right outside the burning tent, and I saw it all. After writing the poem, I thought it might be more for adults than for kids. I'm delighted it's become an attractive picture book for the iPad. It's much greater than I could ever have expected. I'm looking forward to responses from the every corner of the world.

I will need to read the poem several more times before sharing it with my son... So that it does not overwhelm me and cause my voice to waver. This seems to me to be a perfect union of motion design and the written word. To be honest, it's effect on me was a surprise. I would love to see more art like this for the iPad.
