This is one of the best times of the year to be a child in Tokyo, especially as the fascinating world of popular American picture books is coming to Ebisu Garden Place from April 26 to May 6 with an event for children and parents titled “It’s Easy! It’s Fun! The World of Ed Emberley’s Drawing.”

Emberley is known for his “Drawing Book” series first published in the United States in 1969. The books were then translated and published in five other countries including Japan. The books are popular as his illustrations show easy ways of drawing animals, faces and trains by combining simple lines, circles, triangles and squares.
