PreS-Gr 4–In this latest addition to the popular Japanese series, Chirri and Chirra, identical sisters, ride their bicycles into an enchanted forest on a moonlit night. There they join the Full Moon Festival and have a fanciful adventure. There are many cats, magic drinks that give the girls cat tails and whiskers, and flowerworks, like fireworks, to light up the night. Animal crackers run into the night, and a cat band offers joyful music. Their friendly cat hosts provide entertainment, magic, and friendship. Muted illustrations in pencil and pastel complement the gentle story, which will be enjoyed for its playfulness and humor. A very worthwhile, calming addition for story time or one-on -one reading.
VERDICT This exceptionally tender work will be a soothing read-aloud at story hours.
