In the third book in the Kuma-Kuma Chan series, the title character 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 hot chocolate. Instead of physically setting out for one place or another, Kuma-Kuma travels freely all over the world - inside his head. Once again, Kuma-Kuma Chan 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.


"The antidote for your overscheduled, hurried and harried child. " —Julie Danielson, Seven Impossible Things "Can be perused by pre-readers employing their narrative skills independently or shared with a loved one for an interlude of calm and contentment." — Vicky Smith, Kirkus Reviews
