I mentioned before on my previous Book #001 post that one of my favorite bento book writers is Akinoichigo. Her new book 子どもがよろこぶ魔法のおべんとう was released on 19 February, 2010 and you can buy it online from Amazon.co.jp or from Kinokuniya Bookstore. Her bento-making is such an inspiration for me. Bento books were my only source to learn bento making before I got into the bento blogging. I bought her first bento book from Kinokuniya and fell in love ever since. I collected all 5 books that she wrote, never missed it. If you are interested to buy her books, I have provided the links to Amazon.co.jp for all of her books listed below. Unfortunately, all the books are in Japanese. I can't read Japanese too but I don't see this is as a big problem because her books are full with great bento pictures, tips, ideas and recipes. Figuring out how to make it with the limitation of foreign language is one of the challenges, IMHO.
