Staff Reviews

This is my absolute favorite picture book series, in which sisters Chirri and Chirra go on a unique little adventure in every installment. Every page is softly illustrated with vibrant and textured color pencils, creating a wonderful and inviting magical world where black cats offer you sparkling full-moon sodas. A cozy nightcap to read to a little one before bed. Check out the other books in the series; I adore them all!



Chirri and Chirra frolic in the moonlight in the latest whimsical adventure of this much-beloved picture-book series from Japan.

With the light of their trusty bicycles and a glorious full moon illuminating the darkness, Chirri and Chirra go on a nighttime adventure, accompanied by their new cat friends. From fizzy full-moon drinks that give them cat ears and tails to sparkling flower necklaces that grant them access to a special night market, the inseparable duo enjoys all the dreamy treats that the Full Moon Festival has to offer, basking in the warmth and light of discovery, generosity, and friendship.
