Chibi Samurai Wants a Pet
Inspired by Little Kunoichis relationship with her pet ninja bunny, Chibi Samurai sets off to find a companion for himself. He explores many possibilities from Japanese culture--both real and mythical--thinking about how each creature might be as a pet. Little Kunoichi and her pet bunny cheer him on as he searches and searches, until finally Chibi Samurai realizes that the perfect pet has been with him all along. A stag beetle, a favourite in Japanese culture, has been following through all his adventures and is just the right pet for a little samurai.
