About the author
Yuichi Amano was born and grew up in Yokohama, Japan. Just like the main character in this book, Yuichi remembers messing up so many things so many times, still counting to this day! He always just wanted to have fun, but ended up ruining the whole thing instead, and when he tried to fix it he usually made it even worse. Whenever this happened, he broke down in tears, just like the character in this book. But there was always someone like the Dad in this book, who looked past the mistake, accepted him for who he is, and comforted him unconditionally. Yuichi aspires to be a Dad like this for his own son. Yuichi lives with his wife, son, and dog in Seattle, Washington.
