A SPECIAL DAY:
One morning Kaerukun (frog boy) wakes up and realises it is a special day. Usagikun (rabbit boy) told him so the day before. Kaerukun asks many friends but no one knows why it is special. Kaerukun is disappointed and goes home where he finds something amazing.
My NEW FRIEND:
One day Kaerukun picks up a toy bear in the forest and decides to live with him. Although his friends say a toy bear cannot speak and that you cannot be a friends with a toy bear, Kaerukun feeds the him, teaches him how to talk and they became best friends. Everything is fine now but sadly the bear cannot stay with him for long.
Based on a picture book from Netherland, Kaerukun and Friends is a double feature performance of hand puppets.
