Kazuno Kohara grew up in Japan and came to the UK as a student of illustration and print-making. Her first book, THE HAUNTED HOUSE (978-0-230-70539-5) was published in 2008 to great acclaim both at home and abroad; selected by the New York Times as one of their Top Ten Illustrated Books of 2008, it has also been shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Children's Picture Book Award and nominated for the 2010 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. JACK FROST (978-0-230-705418) also secured Kazuno a nomination for Best Emerging Illustrator at the Booktrust Early Years Awards. Kazuno has now returned to Japan, where she lives in Osaka.From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 1—Kohara's latest picture book is tailor-made for pajama storytimes. The Midnight Library is unusual—only open from midnight until dawn. Bustling among furry and feathered patrons, a little librarian and her three assistant owls help each and every reader find the perfect book. Acknowledging that modern libraries also function as vibrant community centers where noise is accommodated, the diminutive information professional cheerfully leads a band of musical squirrels to the activity room, where they "played their instruments as loud as they liked." As dawn approaches and the librarian prepares to close down, she patiently persuades a slowly reading tortoise to get a library card and borrow his selection—a scene which will ring familiar for many librarians. As in Ghosts in the House (Roaring Brook, 2008), Kohara employs a limited but bold palette for her sightly retro-style linocut illustrations. Thick black lines define the young librarian, her animal patrons, and the angular, teetering stacks of books. Mustard yellow, which serves as the primary color throughout, lends the nighttime setting a coziness and warmth appropriate for snuggling up for storytime. Pops of navy blue accent both the midnight sky glimpsed through windows and the dozens of library books. Kohara achieves something unique with this title: a modern sensibility with a classic aesthetic. A delightful addition to picture book collections.—Kiera Parrott, School Library Journal
