Naoko Awa was a teller of fairytales, and these two stories count among her most charming. In the first, Taciturn Rabbit hasn’t seen his good friend Talkative Rabbit for days due to the rain. So he decides the best thing to do is to make himself a new umbrella, from his broken umbrella and an old yellow raincoat. In the second, the two friends team up to harvest some delicious radishes.
