A great adventure to get early readers transitioned into chapter books. It also makes for a fun bedtime story to read your little ones over the course of a week or two: a chapter or two per night…
When young Katie the caterpillar disobeys her mother and enters the airport, a series of events occurs that finds her lost and stranded in Japan. All alone, in a strange and unknown land, she must find her way back home.
Katie meets Yoshi, a strange but friendly beetle, who takes her on a wild journey through the mysterious cities, castles, temples and countrysides of Japan as they search for a bug that can help her find her way home. Along the way, Katie learns to appreciate this foreign land through its people, its language, its customs and its food.
It turns out that these lessons on culture and geography will not be for Katie alone. When the two new friends finally reach the one that can help Katie, it becomes Yoshi’s responsibility to take Katie home.
Join these two bugs as they learn about each other, friendship, acceptance, tolerance and themselves while they try to find a way to get Katie home.
