He was first selected to exhibit his work in the Bologna Children's Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition fiction category in 2001, and has since exhibited his work in the Fiction and Non-Fiction categories several times. Taro works internationally and he is regularly published in Japan, France, Switzerland and Italy. This is his first book with Walker. About The Tiny King he says, It's a simple story about a lonely king who gets married, is blessed with children, and whose life is completely changed by having a family.
