Five million copies sold in Japan, and regularly topping the bestselling children's book list!
Yuka Shimada's illustration style may feel unconventional at first glance. They are not considered "classically beautiful" children's books to most people initially, especially with its muted colours and "interesting" character design. But don't be quick to judge this set by its cover!
In these books, you'll find exciting adventures between two friends, a dog named Bamu and a frog named Kero, in an almost Calvin-and-Hobbes-esque manner. There are no lessons to take home or morals to learn. It is all pure fun storytelling, sprinkled with all the little shenanigans the two of them get up to.
Shimada also does a beautiful job in hiding little illustrative details in these books. There are so many side characters in each page doing interesting things, that it makes these books highly re-readable both for parent and for child.
This set includes 4 books:
- Bamu and Kero's Lazy Sunday 包姆和凱羅的星期天
- Bamu and Kero's Winter Morning 包姆與凱羅的冬日早晨
- Bamu and Kero's Journey in the Sky 包姆和凱羅的天空之旅
- Bamu and Kero's Shopping Adventure 包姆和凱羅購物記
