I am not crazy about Guri and Gura, but these mice are two of the most famous characters in Japanese children's books. In this story, a girl named Violet brings a squash. They break it open and then have a feast of yummy food made from the squash.
This book taught my son the word "squash", which I don't think he was very familiar with. Here in Japan, kabocha squash (in the book called "Violet squash") is generally called "pumpkin" in English.
