The poem was convented to iPad format and released from Hokkaido to the world.[Message from the author]The Circus Fire was inspired by a personal experience. I'm sure that many people from Sapporo who are older than I am remember the fire. It happened in June 1959. The circus caught fire during the Sapporo Festival. I was right outside the burning tent, and I saw it all. After writing the poem, I thought it might be more for adults than for kids. I'm delighted it's become an attractive picture book for the iPad. It's much greater than I could ever have expected. I'm looking forward to responses from the every corner of the world.[About the author]Written by Joh SasakiJoh Sasaki was born in Yubari, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan, in 1950.
