Tatsuyama loves furry animals! Before she wrote Happy Happy Clover, she created ten volumes of manga about her cat. That series is called Pukupuku Natural Circular Notice. In 2002, it won the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award for kid's manga. Happy Happy Clover isn't just a book, it's also an anime and a video game. In 2007, 26 episodes aired on Japanese TV. The Nintendo DS action video game came out in February 2008. But until someone translates them, you'll have to learn Japanese to understand what the characters are saying! Tatsuyama lives in Osaka, Japan.
