Picture book “Krisaburo”



The three chestnut brothers, a gem of a story that "connects lives"
The three chestnut brothers, who are close friends, are having fun playing sumo today as well. The youngest ``Kurisaburo'' is small and always loses, but one day he gets hit with a thorn and no one can fight him because he is afraid of the thorn. One day, Kurisaburo, who became invincible, came across a hungry bear and his cub.
Now, what actions did the three brothers take?

My dearestKuritachi
What she does and what she doesn't do
She's always nearby
Kayoko Yoshizawa (singer-songwriter)
