This sweet and gentle picture book celebrates summer in Japan, as one little girl shares her love for bugs with her cousin who is visiting from America.

Two young cousins who are separated by language, continent and culture meet for the first time when Jill''s family travels from America to Japan to stay with Natsumi''s family during the summer holidays.
