Overview

When a boy receives an invitation in the mail from Kuma-Kuma Chan, a friendly bear who lives far away, he travels by train, bus, and finally on foot to reach Kuma-Kuma Chan's home. Kuma-Kuma Chan welcomes him and serves tea. Even though the two don't have a lot to talk about, just by spending time together, sharing the day's activities, they bond and create a friendship and enjoy each other's company. This heartwarming tale once again immerses children of all ages, in Kuma-Kuma Chan's peaceful, simple world.

Reviews

"The first-person account, told from the friend's perspective, is quietly affectionate and descriptive, never judgmental." —Kirkus Reviews
