The feelings of the main character, Nako, who says, “I’m not afraid to make different choices” and “I want to live my way,” are in line with modern children’s thinking and educational trends. A book recommended for girls in the lower grades of elementary school to accept differences from others and raise their self-esteem. Reiko Hiroshima, who is extremely popular in the “Sentendo” series, is recommended as her “first book”!

3. The newly written page is also gorgeous!
“Bonbon’s Diary”, which reveals what Bonbon was thinking in the story, which is not in the Kadokawa Tsubasa Bunko version, is in full color and contains 4 pages and 1 page of the book’s original postscript. -Comment from Reiko Hiroshima-
The model for the bonbons in this book is my dog, Donna. I also hope that the number of children who like corgis will increase as a result of “BonBon the Witch Dog”.
