There may be no Nintendo character better suited to a children’s picture book than Kirby. Yes, he conquers cosmic horrors on a regular basis and those are the games we play and love… The rest of the time? He’s a sleepy, hungry, fun little cutie who lives a carefree life. And so here we are, with the new ‘Kirby Anytime’ series of books releasing in Japan.

These simple books are small, soft, and colorful — perfect for young ones or those who love that watercolor aesthetic. The two available books are Good Night Kirby and Present of the Stars. The first will see some friends come to visit Kirby as he sleeps, while the second shows a Christmas celebration in Dream Land to warm your heart in winter.


To get an idea of the book’s visual style, a video has been uploaded showing the illustrator at work for a special promo picture. It’s lovely in its own right and perfect for Kirby, anytime.
