The first book in a completely charming series by a well-known Japanese author and illustrator, Doi Kaya.


Chirri & Chirra introduces us to two little girls who go on wonderful adventures together through the natural world. Vibrant, lively, and astonishingly sweet in a pure, unsentimental way, these pages present us with relatable children, small animals, lots of food, atmosphere, and many mysteries.



In the Night

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

With the light of their trusty bicycles and a glorious full moon illuminating the darkness, Chirri and Chirra take on the night, 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 nighttime has to offer, basking in the warmth and light of discovery, generosity, and friendship.


★ “This is a gentle magical adventure with two intrepid explorers who love to try new things. The lovely soft colored pastel art shows a happy world with no adults and lots of friendly cats. The smaller size makes the story that much more cozy, with the landscape orientation offering lovely panoramic views of the trip. It’s hard not to smile while reading this sweet story.  Fans of the previous adventures of Chirri and Chirra will be thrilled with this new offering.” —Stephanie Tournas, Robbins Library (Arlington, MA), Youth Services Book Review, STARRED REVIEW


The Rainy Day

ring-dring, dring-dring! As the distinctive sound of their bicycle bells chimes in with the patter of rain, Chirri & Chirra set off on a new whimsical adventure!

In this seventh installment of the beloved series, the twins serendipitously happen upon a cafe that is only open on rainy days. In their matching raincoats, they peacefully sip tea with a side of sweet rock candy as they watch the droplets fall, before concluding the day with a beautiful rainbow and the company of their animal friends. Kaya Doi’s illustrations, rendered in glowing colored pencil, are warm and inviting, ushering her readers into pages that feel like a haven from the rain outside.


★ “Two little identical girls (sisters? besties?) have an epic bicycle journey of the imagination. It’s a cloudy day and Chirri and Chirra decide to go for a ride. The sound of their bicycle bells—’Dring-dring, dring-dring!’—is the signal that their adventure begins… The colored pencil art creates a softly glowing, magical landscape of friendly animals and sweet treats. It’s a small book, longer than it is wide, which allows panoramic views of the little girls on their bikes traversing the terrain of their imagination. It’s a sweet, gentle story where kindness abounds. This Japanese import is seventh in a winning series, and I have loved each one. For readers who enjoy gentle, cozy forays of the imagination.” —STARRED REVIEW, Stephanie Tournas (Robbins Library) for Youth Services Book Review


In The Tall Grass

Chirri and Chirra go on an imaginative adventure where they discover the small overlooked mysteries of the natural world. In their second adventure Chirri and Chirra become very small, and explore the magical world hidden away in a grove of tall grass. Filled with friendly, industrious bees and equally inventive bugs, this is a book that brings the lovely particularity of life in Japan—marked by food and nature—to young readers here.


★ "Utterly charming." —STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews



Behind a hole in their basement wall, Chirri and Chirra discover a network of tunnels. Join them as they visit moles, discover caves full of glowing flowers, poke at the roots of growing plants, traverse a subterranean lake, and spend the night with a family of badgers! The fourth book in the Japanese Chirri & Chirra series, this underground adventure is sure to charm and delight.


★ "Another delightful adventure with the adorable twins Chirri and Chirra. ... The gorgeous, fresh colored pencil drawings portray a world of harmony between the girls and the animals. The animals have a fairy-like quality that is very appealing." —Stephanie Tournas, Youth Services Book Review


Under the Sea

Join Chirri and Chirra on their enchanting adventure beneath the waves. Chirri and Chirra are pedaling along when they find a cave. At the end of the cave, they see a light. Oh! They are under the sea! They pedal through a maze of coral and pass through an opening in the seaweed, into a scene of seashells of all colors and shapes. Naturally, they come upon sea treats, such as parfait à la conch and marine soda jelly topped with pearl cream. They even experience the famed “South Sea Musical” performed by multitudes of beautiful fish. 

This is the happy, lovely world of Chirri and Chirra, where they stumble upon the most wonderful surprises under the sea. 


"Chirri & Chirra is an utterly charming series of children’s picture books...low on the angst scale and high on the charm meter. Doi is known for her softly styled drawings on rich creamy paper. She creates the illustrations in these books with colored pencils, pastels, and crayons, crafting them to give an old-world feel, a time of innocence and simplicity. The exquisite art radiates joy and has a dreamy quality to it that reflects how children imagine their ideal world to be. These delightful books are a welcome escape for young children from their anxieties." —International Examiner
