Chirri & Chirra, Under the Sea

Enchanted Lion. May 2020. 36p. Tr $16.95. ISBN 9781592703029.
PreS-Gr 2–The sixth outing for Chirri and Chirra finds them deep under the waves, where a delightful adventure awaits. They have fancy desserts, watch a fish song and dance revue, find a cave full of treasures, and then it’s back on their bicycles to pedal up to the surface. Throughout thier underwater visit, they are welcomed and given gifts. The children seem pleased but not especially surprised by their fantastic surroundings and the hospitality of the anthropomorphic undersea creatures. Adorable illustrations show a softly shaded wonderland with many small details that reward careful looking.
VERDICT Best for one-on-one-sharing, this gentle tale will charm both established fans and newcomers to the series.
