Enter the enchanted wintery world of Chirri and Chirra as they bicycle through frozen forests, drink punch in giant ice castles, and drift to sleep in igloos underneath shooting stars. Doi's artwork is so cozy you will want to stay in this wonderland forever.
Book three in the charming Chirri & Chirra series, here we have foxes, bears, birds, goats, and cats all taking shelter together in an icy cavern, enjoying everything from freshly-baked delights to long soaks in hot springs. Over the course of their adventures, Chirri and Chirra even become guests to a family of bears, spending the night in their igloo and dreaming of the northern lights. A winter wonderland worth remembering for its soft radiance and abundant joy.
