Staff Reviews


Imagine the sweetest and cutest thing that you can. Maybe it's a kitten playing with a duckling, or a baby goat wearing pjs and frolicking through daisies or a hedgehog napping in a teacup...GREAT! Now you're prepared to read this book because it is OFF THE CHARTS on the 'adorable' scale and it can be a shock if you're not ready! Read this and slip into Doi's world for some respite and a cup of acorn coffee!

Description


In their second adventure to reach the US market, Chirri & Chirra become very small, and so are able to explore the magical world hidden away in a mound of tall grass. Filled with friendly, industrious bees and equally inventive bugs, this is a book that brings the lovely particularity of life in Japan--marked by food and nature--to young readers here.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Kaya Doi graduated with a degree in design from Tokyo Zokei University. She got her start in picture books by attending the Atosaki Juku Workshop, held at a Tokyo bookshop specializing in children's books. Since then she has created many books featuring her delicate color-pencil drawings. She lives in Chiba Prefecture and maintains a strong interest in environmental and animal welfare issues.
