The popular children's book series "Kaiketsu Zorori", whose 71st volume was published in July this year, has been certified by Guinness World Records as the world's most published children's book series with stories and illustrations written by the same author. A certificate was awarded on the 29th.
"Kaiketsu Zorori" is a story about the fox character "Zorori" going on various adventures with his friends. In July, the 71st volume was published.
This series has been certified by Guinness World Records as "the most volumes of a single children's book series with stories and illustrations written by the same author", and a certificate award ceremony was held in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo on the 29th.
At the ceremony, the author, Yutaka Hara, received the certificate and said, "I'm a little surprised that something like a dream has happened. Sometimes it's hard to run out of ideas, but as long as the children want it, I'll do my best." I want to continue."
According to the publisher, "Kaiketsu Zorori" is scheduled to publish Volume 72 next month.
In an interview after the ceremony, Mr. Hara said, "I was able to continue this far thanks to the support of the children. In the story, Zorori fails every time, but he will try again next time. Don't give up and try harder." I want you to feel that feeling," he said.
