Staff Reviews


Simple and sweet, Doi's lovely book captures the just-rightness of a child's day out. When Chirra and Chirri go for a bike ride, they find that the forest world not only welcomes the woodland animals, but that it has a place for them, too! What will they choose to drink at the forest cafe? What sandwich and jam will they pick from the forest bakery? These are Chirri and Chirra's most pressing concerns. Magical. — Aubrey Restifo
