Circus Day in Japan is the warmly-illustrated story of an exciting day spent by two Japanese children, Joji-chan and Koko-chan, at a circus. Joji-chan and Koko-chan delight at the new sights of their first circus, and young readers are gently introduced to Japanese customs and sites. Perfect for those interested in retro books, the simple text and artwork provide a nostalgic window into Japanese family life in the early 1950s.Originally written by Eleanor Coerr, author of the popular Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, this Japanese translation makes the classic book accessible to a new generation of both English and Japanese speaking readers.
