Staff Reviews

Chirri and Chirra are riding their bikes when they come to a cave that transports them under the sea! There’s an underwater restaurant where fish drink elaborate drinks while lounging on shell chairs and an underwater theater where sharks play guitars. Honestly, I want to live in this world. Check out the rest of the series for equally sweet adventures.

— From Elizabeth


On their sixth adventure, Chirri and Chirra bicycle beneath the waves, discovering the beauty of coral and seashells, and the deliciousness of marine edibles.
