Is Mother Back Yet?

Is Mother Back Yet?

Iwao Fukuda

This is a kamishibai by Iwao Fukuda, whose work regularly and carefully depicts the feelings of children as they go through everyday life. The progression of true-to-life illustrations, which uses the sliding in and out of sheets to advantage, helps the audience share a child’s feeling of unrest as he waits for his mother to come home. Kindly animals appear one after another; the final scene depicts the joy of having Mother return. This kamishibai imparts the secure feeling that, yes, things will turn out all right.
