Description

"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."--Publisher.

Unlike the first two books about Kuma-Kuma Chan, which were originally published in Japan some years before being translated into English and published in the USA, Kuma-Kuma Chan's Travels was first published this year (2017) and translated at the same time. Obviously Kazue Takahashi's ursine creation has found his way into western hearts! I enjoyed the narrative here, which is more a list of Kuma-Kuma Chan's imaginary voyages, than a linear story, and (as always) I found the bear himself very cute. Recommended to anyone who has read and enjoyed the first two books about this inimitable bear.… (more)
