Read this and slip into Doi's world for some respite and a cup of acorn coffee!— From Nicole
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.
