Little Brother received the green book as a gift. It is a translation of Into the Wild by Erin Hunter. See the white lettering under the title Warriors? That is "warriors" in katakana, the script for foreign words.
The red book is a gift Big Sister got for Christmas. It is a translation of a German book called Tintenherz by Cornelia Funke. You may know it as Inkheart.
Titles and covers and artwork are changed when books are translated into Japanese. Click on the label below to see other books that were translated into Japanese. You'll also see authors I have met this year.
