Cultural notes from the author:
Through animal names, this book introduces the concept of Katakana, which is the second type of Japanese phonetic script. All the names of the animals in this book are written in Hiragana (the first type of Japanese phonetic script), except the last two animals, ‘ra i o n (lion)’ and ‘mi i a kya tto’(meerkat). These two words are ‘borrowed’ from the English language, and words like this that originate from outside Japan are typically written in Katakana. Katakana has the same 46 sounds as Hiragana, but is only used for “loan words”, or words “borrowed” from other languages.
