By Kazue Takahashi
In the third book in the Kuma-Kuma Chan series, Kuma-Kuma Chan flies off to a south sea isle where he lies in the sun and drifts into a lazy snooze. He climbs to the summit of a mountain and views the sunrise while drinking a cup of coffee. He even travels back to before he was born to find out what kind of animal he was in a previous life. Instead of physically setting out for one place or another, Kuma-Kuma Chan travels freely all over the world – inside his head.
Kuma-Kuma Chan’s Travels (ISBN 978-1-940842-18-9, US $12.99/CAN $17.99, 52 pages) once again charms as he exemplifies the joy of a simple, peaceful, life. With its spare text and delightful illustrations, this small-format picture book invites readers to explore their own imaginations and create their own travels.
