The Hans Christian Andersen Award, called the "Little Nobel Prize", is presented biennially to an active writer and illustrator with outstanding achievements in the area of children's literature. In 2010, David Almond (UK) was awarded the prize for writing and Jutta Bauer (Germany) for illustration.

The IBBY Honour List is a booklist selected biennially by the national sections of IBBY from recently published books, as works they want to introduce to children in foreign countries. This list consists of three categories: writing, illustration and translation. In 2010, 164 works were selected from 54 countries and regions. From Japan, “Fusion” by Kyoko Hamano, “Ushio” by Hideo Ito and “Daido to to-chan” by Tomoko Kodama were selected.
